History suggests that stocks are expected to rise over the coming weeks – with small cap stocks expected to outperform. The author of today’s article notes that “The outperformance of the small-caps seems to hold true this year given that these pint-sized stocks are well insulated from international headwinds, which we are currently seeing. These are considered safe and better plays if any political issue or economic turmoil creeps into the picture.” For five small-cap ETFs and five small-cap stocks expected to outperform this holiday season, CLICK HERE.

“Every investor portfolio should contain an allocation to precious metals,” argues the author of today’s article. And having this allocation may be more important today than ever. But getting into the precious metals market is not always a simple process: Is gold or silver the better investment? Should you buy physical metals (e.g. bars and coins) or metals-focused financial products (e.g. ETFs)?
