How Small Beats Large for Investments

Today we’re talking about rule number six of Factor Based Investing®. Similar to rule number five (Value Beats Growth), rule number six is small beats large.

This rule is a little easier to follow because there is a lot of sophisticated math involved in determining value. Small is a little bit easier to identify, but it can actually be a big problem within people’s portfolios. A lot of the portfolios we see with a suite of stocks tend to feature large cap, growth stocks such as Walmart or Home Depot.

The problem with investing in large companies like Walmart is that they cannot double in size this year; they are just too big already. A company like Financial Gravity actually has a chance to grow. It’s not because one company is better or because we run things differently; it’s because we’re a smaller company.

Doubling a $10 million company is much easier than doubling a $10 billion company. Even if I was a $10 billion company, I would have to buy $10 billion worth of other companies in order to double my success. It is easier for $10 million companies to buy other $10 million companies, so small companies tend to be better investments in the long run.

 

Smaller companies are more likely to grow.

 

The challenge with small companies is that it is more likely for them to go out of business. While it’s not likely that Walmart will double this year, it’s also not likely that they will go out of business either. A company like ours can easily double but there is the potential to go out of business. Of course, it’s more likely that we will double, but there is a risk there that is not present with larger companies.

When the market last crashed, people came up to me saying, “We need to get out of the market! It’s going to go to zero!” The market cannot go to zero because there are large companies out there that will be safe. Still, if you want long-term growth, investing in small companies is the way to go.

After all, large companies came from somewhere. Someone created and innovated to make their small company grow. It is important for you to build a highly diversified portfolio, so you need to include small companies.

If you have any other questions about investing in small companies or Factor Based Investing® in general, just give me a call or send me an email. I would be happy to help you!
