In this article, we discuss 10 small-cap stocks to sell now before recession begins. If you want to read about some more small-cap stocks to sell now before recession begins, go directly to 5 Small-Cap Stocks to Sell Now Before Recession Begins

The United States Department of Commerce released new economic numbers on May 27, stating that the economy contracted 1.5% annualized during the first quarter of 2022. Even though consumer spending rose by 3.1% annualized between January and March, inflationary pressures continued to persist, with the Consumer Price Index jumping by 8.3% in April compared to a year ago, below a four decade high of 8.5% set in March.

The worrying numbers, due in part to the rising trade deficit, reduced the GDP by 3.2% annualized in the first quarter as well. In a drive to slow borrowing and spending, the Fed has hiked interest rates in the short-term and is likely to continue down that path, raising investor concerns around growth and even a recession. Fed chief Jerome Powell has pledged that the central bank is aiming for a “soft landing” in which wages, consumer spending, and growth slow down but the economy avoids a sharp downturn. 

However, recession fears persist as prominent investment advisors like Moody’s, Goldman Sachs, and Deutsche Bank forecast an economic slump in 2023 and 2024. Mark Zandi, the chief economist at Moody’s Analytics, recently said that recession risks were “uncomfortably high”. Goldman Sachs chief executive Lloyd Blankfein has also warned of a recession threat recently. In late April, David Folkerts-Landau, the chief economist at Deutsche Bank, forecast a major recession in the US within the next two years. 

The higher costs due to inflation and supply chain problems in light of the soaring demand have hit the earnings of companies too, leading to a disappointing earnings season on Wall Street that is comparable to the pandemic lows of 2020. The Russian war in Ukraine, COVID lockdowns in China, and political turmoil elsewhere has increased the risk of recession in global markets as well, with Europe already reeling from the disruption of energy supplies from Russia. Hiring freezes at many organizations are already in place as businesses struggle.

The stock market has been hit with these fears as well, sending the shares of large tech firms like Alphabet Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG), Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT), and Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) to notable lows. In this bleak environment, panicked investors have also started dumping the shares of smaller firms that are more at risk due to market volatility than the larger firms that can withstand pressures. A mass sell-off in the growth sector is already underway. 

Our Methodology

These were picked using market capitalizations. Stocks that have a market capitalization between $300 million to $2 billion and have registered notable declines in their share price year-to-date as of May 27 were preferred for the list. The selected companies also operate in sectors that generally do not perform well during a recession. The business fundamentals and analyst ratings of each company are also discussed to provide some additional context. 

Hedge fund sentiment was included as a classifier as well. Data from around 900 elite hedge funds tracked by Insider Monkey in the first quarter of 2022 was used to identify the number of hedge funds that hold stakes in each company.
