NEW YORK, January 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Investors are often weary of small cap companies. These are high-risk high-reward stocks that usually attract investors with a certain level of risk tolerance. Yet, a few indicators may provide insight into when is a good time to pay attention to small caps. One is that it seems the Federal Reserve has a more positive outlook on the world economy, raising the possibility that additional rate hikes will take place this year. Rate hikes means a stronger dollar, which will lead to an increase on export prices. This situation is likely to have a more significant effect on large cap companies due to their extensive overseas operations, whereas the small cap market is typically more domestically oriented.

Sam Stovall, U.S. equity strategist for S&P Global Market Intelligence, told Investment News that small cap companies were less affected by Yellen's statement regarding possible future rate hikes. "In the past 36 months, the S&P 500 has recorded a 0.72 monthly correlation with the U.S. Dollar Index versus a correlation of 0.55 for the S&P SmallCap 600." Stovall said.
