Small capitalization (small cap) stocks

The stocks of companies whose market value is less than $1 billion. Small-cap companies tend to grow faster than large-cap companies and typically use any stocks for expansion rather to pay dividends. They also are more volatile than large-cap companies, and have a higher failure rate.
