There are currently a lot of catalysts for small caps. The idea of favoring the segment started around the time of Trump’s election, when import tariffs seemed likely. Trump’s America first stance was also generally seen as favorable to small caps, which tend to have a high proportion of domestic sales compared to their larger cap peers. Now, with Trump set to implement metal tariffs and the threat of a trade war looking like a reality, small caps may once again shine, as they would be shielded from most of the international trade fallout. Furthermore, small caps will benefit the most from the new tax cut package.
FINSUM: There are a lot of catalysts that will help small caps. It seems like a great time to buy.
