LD Micro Welcomes Nearly 1,000 Companies to the LD Micro Index

02/01/19 11:30 AM EST

LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / February 1, 2019 / LD Micro is pleased to announce that the LD Micro Index is being reconstituted as of February 1, 2019. Again.

We have always held the belief that our industry needs a truly accurate indicator of what is going on in the micro-cap world.

"With this reconstitution we will have 996 companies in the index. Due to the volatility in the final weeks of 2018, particularly among micro-cap companies, there was quite a bit of movement; there were 312 companies that no longer qualified, 346 new names were added, and 652 companies that remain in place" said David Scher.

A breakdown by exchange, sector, and complete constituent list is available at our website: http://www.ldmicro.com/the-index.

Chris Lahiji, President of LD Micro and former single-digit handicap golfer, stated "As we turn three, more and more people in our industry are using the Index as an additional indicator for what is taking place on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis. We had record interest from funds this past year, due to the batshit fluctuations experienced in Q4. Let's just say that the smallest public companies got smoked the hardest. From Abraxas Petroleum (AXAS) to Zagg (ZAGG), the list has changed a great deal and is worth a closer look. Since day one, our goal has always been to add much needed insight to the space. Shutdown or not, rain or shine (mostly rain), LD remains synonymous with the micro-cap world."

2018 Index Performance:

LD Micro Index: -26%

Russell 2000: -11.1

S&P 500: -6.24%
