“I think I’m going to get prosecco,” my friend Heather announced.

I looked up from my menu, surprised.

It was 11 o’clock in the morning, on a Thursday, and we had exactly 45 more minutes away from our kids. Well, most of our kids. Heather’s newborn son was sleeping in his stroller next to us.

Why You Should Invest in Companies You've Never Heard of Before

Investors interested in generating strong profits from their stock portfolios should have a large investment in the stocks of companies they have never heard of before. 

The vast majority of investors make a simple mistake: they have way too little exposure to small-cap stocks (and too much to large-cap stocks).  Many believe small-cap stocks are too risky and that large-cap stocks are “safer.”   The fact is that while…
