U.S. Large, Mid and Small-Cap ETFs

The ETFs on this is focus on U.S. companies of a specific size based on market capitalization. There are several terms that new investors may be unfamiliar with and here is a quick tutorial to help catch you up on the lingo.

Large-Cap Companies: These are the largest publicly traded companies and include many of the most familiar brand names. Companies like Wal-Mart, Apple, Microsoft, IBM and many other well-known companies fit into this category.

Mid-Cap Companies: Think of these as mid-sized companies. You might recognize many of these companies while others may be unfamiliar to you. These companies are still quite large by common standards.

Small-Cap Companies: Think of these as relatively small-sized companies. Many of these companies will be unfamiliar to most investors. Despite this unfamiliarity, a number of investors are attracted to this type of company (and ETF) as a compliment to their portfolio or for the potential growth this classification of company has historically provided.

Micro-Cap Companies: These are the smallest companies based on market capitalization. Similar to small-cap companies, investors are often attracted to this type of company for the growth they potentially offer.

Growth ETFs: These ETFs are comprised on companies that are expected to grow faster than other comparable companies.

Value ETFs: These ETFs are comprised of companies that are thought to be undervalued compared to other comparable companies.
