In the last 3 years midcaps and smallcaps have underperformed the index and large cap styles. Last two weeks saw the smallcaps and midcaps outperform the largecaps and index in terms of returns generated.
Many frustrated with the mute returns redeemed their midcaps and smallcap investments. Timeframe is the key for investing in the mid and small cap theme. The investing timeframe should be over 5-7 years and for that you need temperament.
Negative and mute returns will scare you but one must stay put.
