NEW YORK, February 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Small cap companies have performed relatively well in 2016. This year is up in the air. While small caps are usually considered risky companies to invest in, sometimes macroeconomic events may influence the market. The two main macroeconomic changes in 2017 are expected to be the strengthening dollar, a result of probable rate hikes by the Federal Reserve later in the year, and Trade protectionism, a possible result of policies enacted by the new administration. In both cases, small caps are less susceptible to changes of this sort as such companies are less involved overseas. Premier Holding Corp. (OTC: PRHL), Cannabics Pharmaceuticals Inc. (OTC: CNBX), Altura Mining Ltd (OTC: ALTAF), Rocky Mountain High Brands, Inc. (OTC: RMHB), Blake Insomnia Therapeutics Inc. (OTC: BKIT)
Hank Smith, chief investment officer at Haverford Trust explained, "A lot of what [administration] says, on lowering taxes and regulation, is pro-growth, but his rhetoric on trade is not… If he goes about trying to increase tariffs or incites a trade war, that would favor small stocks, which are domestically orientated, at the expense of the multinationals that make up the S&P 500."
