Small-cap stocks are companies with a market capitalization between $300 million and $2 billion. Historically, such stocks have performed better than large-cap stocks, especially during financial crises. Though these stocks offer higher returns, they are equally risky as well because of their higher volatility. If a trade goes wrong, investors can lose a significant amount of money by betting on small-cap stocks. To give you an idea of the extent of losses, discussed below are the ten worst performing small-cap stocks in March 2022.
