Mid-cap stocks have gained more than large stocks over the long term and they’re better able to weather economic shocks than smaller firms. That’s why many investors like to look for bargain stocks with market capitalization between $2 billion and $10 billion. The 10 U.S. stocks listed alphabetically in this  table were too large to make our Top 100 small-cap list, but we think they offer similar potential. These mid-caps got at least one A and one B according to the value and growth tests we use for our small-cap stocks. To encourage diversification, each one is from a different industry group.
