Friday’s market movers
Investors should be aware that when they invest in the small-cap industry they are exposed to more market risk; this should not be seen as a reason not to buy the common stock of these businesses but as an indication that there is great potential to make great buying choices and accumulate wealth.
The saying goes on Wall Street:
“To gain higher returns the investor should take on more calculated risk”
How true this is depending on the person asked, but most would agree. The Small Caps this week did well for their shareholders, the top gainers increased in value on average by about 66% & the “losers” lost about 27% for the day. This shows the “bullish” sentiment going into the end of the week in the Canadian market.
