Another stock market prediction for 2023? Small-cap stocks will crush large caps.
Going into this new year, large-cap stocks have traded around 17X forward earnings, while small-cap stocks have traded around 13X forward earnings. To put those numbers into perspective, large caps have reverted to “average” valuation levels, while small caps are trading near all-time-low valuations. That’s because investors have been playing defense against a potential recession by buying less-risky large caps.
Once the tide turns in 2023, they’ll ditch the large caps and play offense with small caps. And that will cause small-cap stocks to win big.
