    Here’s a sign the bullish small-cap stock trade is getting crowded

The recent outperformance by small-cap stocks has been attributed in part to trade-war worries, with analysts emphasizing that smaller, domestic-focused companies that are less dependent on exports would be better suited to weather any damage.
