Why do you need ASX Small Cap research?

What you see with ASX Small Caps, is “information risk”. The companies are too small for the big brokers to invest in so there is not the research around. Also, with these ASX Small Caps, the company's historic earnings performance can often bear little resemblance to their future earnings and so you need quality research before you invest in them.

Why invest in Small Caps?

Investing is about making money and small caps need to be a component of every investors' portfolio:

1. A lack of information

The Australian small cap market is notoriously inefficient. Unlike bigger companies, few, if any analysts' forecasts exist for its revenues and profits. There is also little idea of whether or not the company will need to come to investors for capital.

2. Opportunities to make money

Precisely because of these inefficiencies, the only area where fundies outperform the market is in the small cap arena, according to ratings agency Standard & Poors.

3. Retirement preparation

Small caps offer an essential avenue for retirement preparation, because they can generate capital growth for investors. This is because small companies offer leverage – both operationally and financially. Leverage means you are much more likely to double in size if your market cap is $100 million, than if it is $1 billion.

4. Diversification

Small companies provide diversification from how the economy performs. A small company's earnings growth is based more on increasing its market share, than on how the general economy performs. It is coming from a very low base, so if you believe in the story, there is every chance it will achieve just this.

5. Growth

A small company can grow its earnings by increasing its market share from 1 per cent to 5 per cent. A large company with market share of 50 per cent will be basically defending its position.

6. Variety

Small cap ASX listed companies provide the only opportunity for investment in businesses that have management that are both entrepreneurial and experienced, to varying degrees. The exciting part of being invested in this sector is watching businesses grow.

ASX Small Caps versus Blue Chip Stocks

Blue Chip stocks like the banks, Telstra and other internet companies pre Covid-19 were trading at record high levels. Subsequently monetary stimulus has encouraged buying in many, which has lifted global indexes to within spitting distance of the previous levels. Investors are confident that their earnings will appreciate, delivering growing dividend income. However, these companies have high “price risk”.

If there is any softening of their earnings growth, which is inevitable in the new environment where there is much less certainty about the future, their share prices are extremely vulnerable to another wave of sustained selling.
