7 Mighty Mid-Caps to Strengthen Your Portfolio

 

Mid-cap stocks are commonly defined as those of companies with a market capitalization (market cap) of between $2 billion and $10 billion dollars. During bull markets, mid-cap stocks can be overlooked because of slow, steady growth that typically lags the broader market.

However, when the market weakens, investors look for a positive return wherever they can get it. At times like this, the steady performance of mid-cap stocks puts them in high demand. In 2022, the S&P Mid-Cap 400 Index fund was “only" down about 13%. But in a year when all equity classes were tested, the index still outperformed the S&P 500 index that was down approximately 18% in the same time period.

One common characteristic of every stock on this list is a growing dividend. This isn't necessarily unusual for mid-cap stocks, but it's not always common. That makes them ideal candidates for investors that are willing to assume the risk of investing in equities in 2023.
