Opportunities For Alpha: Exploring MicroCap Equity

Ian Cassel Blog, White Papers 2 Comments

I stumbled upon this RBC white paper on microcaps this morning. The paper hits on a few topics on why microcaps are so unique and why they are such an opportunity. The U.S. microcap equity market is comprised of the smallest publicly traded and investable companies in the United States. These companies, often young businesses with small and motivated management teams, simple business models and concentrated product lines, are inherently biased toward aggressive growth and the advantages of active investment management. In this paper, we provide an overview of microcap equity, discuss the benefits of the asset class, and explore this compelling opportunity for institutional investors seeking an active investment solution to meet their alpha and diversification objectives. 



The MicroCapClub (mc2) is an exclusive forum for experienced microcap investors focused on microcap companies (sub $300m market cap). The MicroCapClub was created to be a platform for experienced microcap investors to share and discuss stock ideas. Our goal at MicroCapClub.com is quality membership, quality stocks, and quality content.  If you are an experienced microcap investor, feel free to Apply today.

Ian is a full-time microcap investor. He is the founder of MicroCapClub, CIO of Intelligent Fanatics Capital Management, and co-founder of IntelligentFanatics.com. Ian started investing as a teenager and learned from losing his money over and over again. Microcap companies are the smallest public companies that exist, representing 48% of all public companies in North America. Berkshire Hathaway, Wal-Mart, Amgen, Netflix, and many others started as small microcap companies. Ian’s belief is the key to outsized returns is finding great companies early because all great companies started as small companies.
