What are ASX Small Caps?

Small Caps are the the smaller companies listed on the ASX by size. The size is determined by market cap.

Why does size matter? What is "Market Cap"?

Market cap is important because it tells you how large or small the company is. Short for market capitalisation. The definition is simply the current share price x the number of shares on the ASX.​

Under $50M

If a company is too small, liquidity is a problem. You could find it hard to buy and sell your shares when you want to.

Sweet Spot for Making Money

Size matters because stocks in the $50 million-$600 million market cap are in the sweet spot for making money.


At the billion dollar value it is hard to grow even 5-10%.

Why do takeovers matter?

"19% of 1 in 5 of our stock picks have been taken over in the last 10 years. Why does that matter? Because the share price rockets bringing big returns to investors."

What are ASX Penny Stocks?

Small Caps are also called Penny stocks, Growth Stocks, Emerging Companies or Micro-Caps. They are traditionally cheap and cost only a penny or a couple of dollars.

Are Small Caps riskier than large caps?

Generally they may be. But risk and return are related.

  • The business is usually less complex.

  • It may operate in a niche or may bring new technology or a new financial product or service to market.

  • This can be a serious threat to large companies.


Liquidity - it may be harder to buy the shares as there are fewer shares on the market.

Depending on the industry they company operates in, they may be more prone to dip in a recession.

Advantages for investors
  • The biggest advantage for personal investors is that they are under researched.

  • They also sit outside the big ASX group of indices (eg the ASX 200 index) which means fund managers are not able to invest in them. But there is a lot of money to be made by individuals in this space.

Looking ahead: Success from niche industries

Emerging and niche industries bringing new technology to the market.

Successful companies in Australia come in many shapes and sizes. Often success comes from a niche, or a future facing industry. Sometimes the company is disrupting the way traditional companies do business, or are inventing new markets.

Diverse industries

Think Australia's healthcare, energy, mining, resources, medtech, funds manager, pharma and many other corporate activities.
