What size is "small"? There are many definitions. Some people define a small public company as one with a market cap under $1 billion. Others define small cap as under $2 billion. And there are yet other definitions. Over the last two decades the word "small" has come to mean larger and larger companies! To confuse matters, NASDAQ's small cap market system continues to list truly small public companies, many of which would be classified as nano-cap by the definitions, below. Here are some current definitions from Investopedia and Investor Words.

Market Cap Investopedia Investor Words
Mega-Cap over $200 billion over $250 billion
Large-Cap $10 billion - $200 billion. $5 billion - $250 billion
Mid-Cap $2 billion - $10 billion $1 billion - $5 billion
Small-Cap $300 million - $2 billion $250 million - $1 billion
Micro-Cap $50 million - $300 million under 250 million
Nano-Cap under $50 million --

Our practical definition for this page is as follows: Once a company trades for $5 per share or more and trades on NASDAQ's National Market System, AMEX or NYSE we will not call it a small company.

I feel a smallcap stock (or under) should trade below $5, with a market cap under $500mil. So, by the above definition, I am more into Micro, than small, but trade both.

Feel free to post questions, recommendations and I will be glad to respond.

Hope you enjoy your stay here, and find this forum useful.
