There is a common misperception that small and micro cap stocks are adversely affected by rising yields. Looking back at data over the last 30 years may prove otherwise. Once again small and micro cap stock prices are trending higher and as such Eric Kuby (Chief Investment Officer) is joined by Brooke Kuby (Analyst) to discuss the micro and macro attributes of companies in this asset class and how they may fair during another period of rising yields.
The second half of the episode, Eric and Brooke tackle the first sector in the Small Cap Bootcamp™ series: the Financial sector. This group includes consumer lenders, mortgage finance businesses, and other financial services; however, banks make up a majority. Listeners will learn how these types of companies make money, which profit metrics are often underemphasized by traditional brokerage firm analysts, and what disruptions in the FinTech world may have in store for the rest of the category.
The next episode in the Small Cap Bootcamp™ will be evaluating the Consumer Discretionary sector. Please submit your questions regarding any sector to email@example.com.
