On the third hand, I wouldn't just use market cap to make my investing decisions.

i don't, but it does play somewhat of a factor in my decisions

part of what i look for is what potential market size the company could achieve in x years. obviously, the larger the growth potential (among many other factors), the greater my chances of investing in that particular company

and yeah, the larger growth potential is usually found in mid-caps compared to large caps. more risk, but more reward. and considering i'm still pretty young, i'm willing to take on the risk

-markoose, looking forward to buying the large caps of tomorrow, but still has an eye on some fast-growing large caps of today if he could just find them
