English term or phrase:High-cap High Techs
This is the title in a document discussing the cyber trade in securities. The "High-cap" part bothers me here. I have no idea, what it means. The High Techs are ok. Does anyone know of a snappy translation (and/or a good explanation) of High-cap?? Thanks!

Explanation: I would tend to resist the urge to leave the terms untranslated (although, depending on the target audience, this may be an option). "High cap" is indeed unusual, although it might be explained by the fact that even those issues no longer have much of a market capitalisation. It really depends on exactly which issues you're talking about here: the likes of Microsoft, Oracle, SAP or even Cisco are certainly "highly capitalised" when compared to some of the more prominent victims of the reality check seen in the high-growth markets over the last 12-18 months (such as the countless portals, or recent victims, e.g. Brokat).
I would need to see the paragraph, or even the entire article to tell you whether this fits the context.
