Mid-cap growth portfolios target U.S. firms that are projected to grow faster than other mid-cap stocks, therefore commanding relatively higher prices. Stocks in the middle 20% of the capitalization of the U.S. equity market are defined as mid-cap. Growth is defined based on fast growth (high growth rates for earnings, sales, book value, and cash flow) and high valuations (high price ratios and low dividend yields). 
  Investment Risks
Mid Cap Funds: The securities of companies with market capitalizations below $10 billion may be more volatile and less liquid than the securities of larger companies.
