A A A

Small cap stocks have been market darlings for much of 2013, and they have easily led their large cap counterparts. However, they are starting to become a bit pricey, and some cracks have started to appear in their growth story lately.

Meanwhile, international markets have been on the rebound while safer stocks have once again come into focus. If this trend continues, it could suggest that a shift towards large and even mega cap stocks is at hand.

Fortunately for investors seeking diversified exposure to this segment, there are a few ETFs that focus on this huge cap level. Two such popular funds include the Guggenheim Russell Top 50 Mega Cap ETF ( XLG ) , and the iShares S&P 100 ETF ( OEF ) .

For more on why these might be solid picks in this changing market environment, make sure to watch our short video on mega cap ETFs below:
