Small-cap stocks, those publicly traded companies with market capitalizations less than $2 billion, can yield significant gains that are impossible to find when investing in larger stocks. The best performing investments of all-time started out as small-cap stocks, including Cisco +94,983%, Dell +61,025%, Microsoft +50,209%, and Wal-Mart +79,016%.
Following an economic recession, small-cap stocks have proven to consistently perform better than large-cap stocks. A recent study from Merrill Lynch found that in the 18 bear markets since the 1930's, small caps posted an average gain of 41.4% in the 12 months after the end of the decline, compared with an average gain of 32.4% for large caps. This impressive performance makes small-cap stocks among the most attractive investments after a financial downturn.
Unfortunately, information about how to successfully invest in these smaller companies has been hard to find--until now.
Throughout The Small-Cap Investor, Wyatt clearly outlines his proven investment process and the systems that are involved - detailing eight straightforward steps readers need to take to find, research and analyze small-cap stocks that could have big gains. Page by page, he takes the time to explain the essential criteria involved in picking the right stocks and timing buy/sell decisions. Topics include:
- Identifying growth trends and market sectors positioned for rapid growth in the years to come
- Secrets for finding undiscovered small caps before they are embraced by the financial media and institutional investors
- Understanding the fundamentals of a potential investment, including products, services and management's ability to run the business
By following Wyatt's eight-step process outlined in The Small-Cap Investor, you'll have the edge over other investors and be in a better position to profit from the exponential growth of the right small-cap companies. For more information on Wyatt's book visit http://www.smallcapbook.com/?r=pr1
