The best small-cap stocks can double or triple investors' gains over the broader market. The Russell 2000 - the index that follows small caps - is up 20% in the last five months, while the Dow Jones Industrial Average has gained 9.6%.
"To put it mildly, small caps have been absolutely crushing the broader market," said Money Morning's Small-Cap Investing Specialist Sid Riggs last month. "Too bad the mainstream financial media would rather spook investors with the 'what ifs' of what is going wrong domestically and abroad."

Investing in small-cap stocks doesn't have to be scary. You can add this growth to your portfolio if you just start with the basics.
"Long-term, quality small-cap companies represent one of the strongest wealth creation investments in the market - but not just any small-cap company," said Riggs.
