Wilshire Micro-Cap ETF (WMCR)
Wilshire Micro-Cap ETF (WMCR) was chosen because microcaps tend to be more volatile and have higher upside than safer blue chips. However, some of the risk is mitigated by having more than 1,100 securities; the diversification protects against massive moves.
Frankly, this is the least aggressive of the five, but that’s hardly an argument against it. WMCR is clocking the market at 40% gains year-to-date,
The fund is comparatively pricey at 0.58% in fees, and its largest holding, Cardiovascular Systems (CSII) only accounts for 0.59% of the funds assets.
