This article talks about the performance of stocks of small corporations. Nakaba Minai, a senior fund manager of Société Générale Asset Management, says in 2007, small capitalization stocks will outperform, drawing in investors eager to cash in on Japan's longest economic expansion in four decades. As the Jasdaq index has gained 6.5% in 2007, outpacing a 1% rise in the Nikkei 225 index, Minai notes that he would not be surprised to see returns of 15% or 20% on small stocks in 2007.
