5 Micro-cap Stocks Billionaires Love The Most

Small-cap stocks usually fail to get the attention of the markets, but our research shows that if these stocks are picked with the right strategy, they can deliver huge profits. For example, the Russell 2000 ETF (IWM) has outperformed the larger S&P 500 ETF (SPY) by more than 10 percentage points since the end of June. Given their 2 and 20 payment structure, hedge funds have more resources than the average investor. The funds have access to expert networks and get tips from industry insiders. They also have numerous Ivy League graduates and MBAs. Like everyone else, hedge funds perform miserably at times, but their consensus picks have historically outperformed the market after risk adjustments.

More recently the top 30 mid-cap stocks (market caps between $1 billion and $10 billion) among hedge funds delivered an average return of 18% during the last four quarters (S&P 500 Index funds returned only 7.6% during the same period). In this article, we will go even smaller and talk about the five stocks (with less a billion dollars in market value) that billionaires in our database are bullish on.
