Wednesday, June 20, 2018: Exploring Russell 2000 and Small Cap Stocks




This Morning’s Update

DOW +4.73—–NASDAQ +72.97—–SP500 +10.48—–NYSE +29.22

Portfolio Leaders: SHOP, AMZN, BA
Portfolio Laggards: FDX, T, CAT




The NASDAQ and Tech Stocks are leading the way this morning.

Facebook (FB) surpassed the $200 mark for the first time to new all-time highs.

Defense Stocks are down like RTN, BA, NOC, COL, HON.

Amazon, Berkshire Hathaway and JP Morgan are joining forces to create their own healthcare solution, which will be competitive with other healthcare companies. Hopefully, this will level the playing field and bring the costs down in healthcare for millions of Americans.

The DOW was in the red to start off the trading session but has just been in the green, but now it’s back slightly in the red.

The stock market overall is trying to rebound from yesterday’s triple digit down day.

Still some uncertainty in how the Trade Wars will play out and how they will affect the stock market.




Russell 2000 and Small Caps

Word on The Street is that small cap stocks are getting more attention, mainly because they are local to U.S. investors and aren’t suffering from the broader effects of the global market. Sometimes that is good.

Here is a list of small cap stocks that I’m following:

CALM, ALK, UBSH, PLOW, MNRO, HOMB, YORW, COLB, TCBK, HFWA, ALE, BCPC, AOS, ES

It is always recommended that investors have a diversified portfolio of small and large cap stocks.
