    Optimism During a Trade War

    Trade tensions may be ongoing, but Portfolio Manager Trevor Gurwich is optimistic about opportunities in the global market for small caps.

      Historically, small- and/or mid-cap stocks have been more volatile than the stock of larger, more-established companies. Smaller companies may have limited resources, product lines and markets, and their securities may trade less frequently and in more limited volumes than the securities of larger companies.
