Steve Lipper On Nasdaq TradeTalks

Senior Investment Strategist Steve Lipper was a guest on Nasdaq TradeTalks to discuss why small caps may do well going forward and how the election may impact the asset class’s performance.

Steve said small caps tend to be more cyclical than their large cap peers, so it’s advantageous to invest in small caps when the economy is recovering from a downturn and there is a path towards continued growth—similar to the current environment. He added that investors are currently in what can be considered small cap season: Steve analyzed 75 years of historical data and saw that small caps post much higher returns on average for the six-month period beginning October 31 than for other comparable periods throughout the year.

Steve also discussed that if one party sweeps in the election, then we may see more changes. He added that if instead the election results in divided government, then a large stimulus package is unlikely, but the economy is likely to recover on a moderate basis.
