Amid the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, market swings caused by the pandemic have created an opportunity for investors to reposition their portfolios. Conventional wisdom states that large-cap stocks hold up best in market downturns and small-cap stocks lead in a recovery, but our research may surprise you.
Our analysis found that during periods of systemic risk since the mid-1990s, contrary to conventional wisdom, large caps did not fall the least and small caps did not lead recoveries. Instead, mid caps historically fared the best and showcased resiliency during these times.
