Are you ready to invest in the stock market’s ‘hidden sector’?
When it comes to locking in the BIGGEST investment gains, sometimes the trick is to ‘think small’.
Dear fellow Fool,
According to an annual study1, if you’d invested £100 in the broader stock market in 1955, by the end of 2017 you would have ended up with the handsome sum of £109,500.
But if you had taken that same £100 and invested it in some of the UK’s smaller market-cap companies…
You’d have captured £720,900 over the exact same time period — and earned yourself OVER 6 TIMES as much money from the exact same initial investment.

Please see footnote 1 for a more detailed explanation.
In other words, the impact that ‘thinking small’ can have on your financial success can be absolutely staggering.
So if you’re the sort of investor who’d prefer to buy and hold companies with the power to turn £100 into over £720,000, rather than just a bit over £100,000…
Perhaps you’re asking:
“How can I find these fortune‑building
small‑cap stocks for myself?”
If you‘ve got all the time in the world — and a degree or two in advanced financial analysis—you just may be ready to hunt down the market‘s most ‘under-the-radar’ investments on your own.
But if you’re looking to get in on the stock market’s MOST exciting small-cap opportunities while doing only minutes of work per month…
Then perhaps it’s time to put Motley Fool Hidden Winners to work for you.
In May 2015, our team here at The Motley Fool UK decided to embark on our boldest undertaking yet…
And to place one our absolute best investors at the helm.
As the head of Hidden Winners, Mark Rogers’ job is simple:
- He and his team scour for what they believe are the absolute best small-cap opportunities… distilling hours of complex financial analysis into 1 simple, easy-to-read, and immediately actionable share tip every month.
- He shares those opportunities with the ‘members-only’ Hidden Winners community, so they can act immediately and lock in maximum long-term profit potential.
- Lather, Rinse, Repeat — 1 ‘under-the-radar’ small-cap share tip, each and every month, for a select group of UK investors just like you.
So how does the Hidden Winners team do it?
It’s not what you might think.
They don’t chase hot stock tips. They don’t rely on supercomputers or fancy algorithms. And they certainly don’t boast one of those surefire market timing ‘systems’ that so many pundits claim to have.
Instead, Mark and his team focus on three ‘hidden’ pockets of the stock market, seeking out well-managed companies with unbeatable products or services.
These are situations where the core investment thesis rides on the team’s assessment of the superior ‘quality’ of the business in question. True long-term buy–and–hold compounding machines, these firms generally lead a specific niche, and earn attractive returns on invested capital.
These are the rapidly-expanding innovators of the UK market, where sales and cash flows are increasing at double-digit rates, but the shares haven’t quite caught the attention they deserve in The City.
While value is a secondary consideration to finding truly winning businesses, there are many special situations to be found in the small-cap market, where lack-of-coverage and ignorance can conspire to completely misprice perfectly good shares.
These are the type of stocks that most investors simply DO NOT think about…
Because most investors haven’t put the Hidden Winners team to work for them!
And here’s the best part…
Motley Fool Hidden Winners’ average small-cap stock pick has outperformed the market by over 42.2%!2
Even though the FTSE All-Share Total Return index climbed only +15.9% since we launched, that hasn’t stopped the Hidden Winners’ team’s average small-cap stock pick from racking up a healthy +58.2% gain!2
That’s almost FOUR TIMES the market’s average return.2
And while past performance is no guarantee of future success, I’m sure you’ll agree that’s a stunning achievement… especially when you factor-in how volatile the stock market has been over the past 3 years.
When you join today, you can get instant unlimited access to all of this market-beating research, including all of our active stock recommendations, our list of ‘Best Buys Now’ stocks and the team’s entire watch list.

“Definitely worth it.”
— I.W., Cornwall.
