However, it is important to note that microcap stocks are very high-risk stocks and investors should mostly avoid such stocks and only very high-risk investors with a fundamental knowledge of the markets should consider investing in them. While they give massive returns in small periods, the risks associated are also excruciatingly high. Also, investors must consult their financial advisors before buying these stocks.
