Q1 wasn’t a good period for the equity market overall, and for the small-cap stocks. We could call Q1 a strange period as well. The small-cap Russell 2000 Index dropped more than 20% in Q1. Interestingly, the Index witnessed a drop of over 20% in January itself, i.e. a month before the Russian invasion. In fact, despite the rise in uncertainty following the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the small-cap Russell 2000 Index gave a negative return only in January in Q1. Amid such a backdrop, let’s take a look at the five best and worst performing small-cap stocks in Q1 2022.
