Mid-cap Stocks

Mid-cap stocks are perhaps the most intriguing investments, as they offer the best of both worlds: the potential for growth of small-cap stocks and the stability of large-cap stocks. Technically speaking, mid-cap stocks are stock of any company whose market cap falls between $2 and $10 billion. Due to the stability of mid-cap stocks, the plays on the stocks are plentiful. Some of the best mid-cap stocks include Dick’s Sporting Goods (NYSE:DKS) and Old Republic International (NYSE:ORI). A few of the best mid-cap funds are T. Rowe Price Mid-Cap Growth (MUTF:RPMGX) and Vanguard Mid-Cap ETF (NYSEARCA:VO).
