For 75 Years, no investment has consistently produced higher long-term returns than stocks of small companies. They haven't done this without risk, though - for every small stock that climbs 200 percent, there are a good number that go nowhere, and the group as a whole is subject to wide price swings. How do you reap the benefits without running the risk? The best money managers know how. And in this book, they share their knowledge with you. If you do your homework, invest for the long term, and diversify, small-cap stocks will boost your returns and stabilize them by complementing the performance of other investments, such as large-cap stocks and bonds.
