The Case for Small Caps for Diversification and Income

October 12, 2021

Live Strategy Discussion

Should investors consider small-cap for diversification and income? David Dierking, Editor, The Street shares his thoughts with Connor O’Brien, CEO of O’Shares ETFs.

Diversification does not assure a profit or protect one against a loss.
There is no guarantee that a company will pay or continually increase its dividends.
Value investing involves the risk that an investment made in undervalued securities may not appreciate in value as anticipated or remain undervalued for long periods of time.
