The Micro cap market segment can be a tricky bet for common investors, as it usually has companies with low valuation and their risk of sustainability may be considerably high as compared to large cap or mid cap stocks. The micro cap segment is defined by those companies which have a market capitalization below US$300 million. Penny stocks may also be a part of this market segment. Since the list of such companies is huge, investors may not be able to cherry pick the most promising companies worth investing. Micro cap ETFs provide a better route to take the bet on micro cap sector, instead of an individual picking up stocks. There are Micro Cap ETFs and Micro Cap Blend ETFs. They allow ample choice to investors to invest in a pooled basket of select micro cap stocks. A select number of Leveraged Micro Cap Exchange-traded Funds (ETF) are also available, and these are suited to investors who want higher exposure from the micro cap sector. Such leverage micro cap ETFs generate magnified returns on their corresponding micro cap market index. These are suitable for investors who wish to gain two times or three times exposure from a select market or sector of their choice in the micros cap space. Other segments available are Leveraged Small Cap ETFs, Leveraged Mid Cap ETFs, Leveraged Large Cap ETFs and Leveraged Mega Cap ETFs.
