Wall Street is littered with unicorns this past year that have been less than magical for investors. These startups that were valued at over a billion dollars in the private market, couldn’t quite live up to lofty expectations when they finally hit the public market. AdvisorShares’ CEO Noah Hamman tells Yahoo Finance that he’s focused on building a portfolio of potential unicorns outside of the high flying names, such as the recent initial public offering of Casper (CSPR). “We are looking for small and micro-cap stocks, which can provide a similar risk return profit as private equity,” says Hamman. “We think it’s a significant area that’s overlooked by investors.”

Google’s parent company, Alphabet, is doing a lot of spending, and that has some investors worried.
