USA Stock Consideration Report (November 2017)
Expectations increased slightly for large cap market capitalization stocks to 106.0% an increase of under one percentage point while mid cap expectations increased to 116.5% up from 115.3% and small cap was nearly unchanged at 111.3%. Over valuation pressures remained in check even with large cap stocks posting over a 15% return for the year followed by mid cap with over 10% and small cap remaining positive at nearly 7%. Small cap has struggled all year trying to post positive results, so reaching this level of return without exceeding normal valuations is welcomed.
