Worst Small-Cap Stock Fund

Wasatch Emerging Markets Small Cap Fund


While small-cap stocks did well in 2013, it was a mediocre year for emerging market equities. Wasatch Emerging Markets Small Cap Fund (WAEMX) was caught between these trends. It did manage to beat the FTSE Emerging Index, which dropped 5 percent in the first 11 months of the year. The fund's largest holding is St. Shine Optical Co. (1565 TT), a Taiwanese maker of soft contact lens that has seen its shares double in the past year. 

Of 327 U.S.-based small-cap equity mutual funds with assets of at least $100 million and a median holding market capitalization of less than $3 billion. Excluded are closed-end funds and those that rely on leverage.
