katybo Why not B? Small company stocks are often less liquid...
johnsk A basically says the risk of these stocks are higher. In my opinion this should be the most imprtant factor to consider for any investors.
haarlemmer Unfortunately, this question appears in this section.
mtcfa There is an efficient secondary market for small stocks... that's why B is incorrect.
americade Choice A includes B
magicchip Not B because for the most part there is a liquid market for small company stocks. OTC, TSX-V in Canada, pink sheets, etc.
Gooner7 B is slightly correct, as it is less liquid than a Dow30 stock, but A is rather obvious
johntan1979 Agree with Gooner7. Some small caps trade less than 500 per day, while mega caps easily over 5 million (volume).

A is a stronger choice than B.
