Microcap companies make up almost half of all publicly traded companies on all US exchanges, including the OTC Markets and OTCBB. Until recently, microcaps have been under appreciated by a bulk of investors and especially the financial press. The tremendous returns garnered by the Russell MicroCap Index (IWC) in 2013 (+45%), and by well known microcap funds like the Perritt Ultra MicroCap Fund (PREOX) +56%, has put the equity class back on the map. Here are a few statistics about the microcap space.
There are currently 18,726 public companies on all US Exchanges (including OTC). Lets now take out the 2,016 companies that are less than $1 million market cap (shells, no corporate entity or operating business) leaving us with 16,710 public companies. (source S&P CapIQ- data calculated on 2/5/14)
