The research published in the journal American Journal of Clinical Nutrition examined whether children between the ages of three and five were susceptible to the portion size effect and the tendency of people to eat more when larger portions are served.
Smaller kits rose more than medium-sized ones, similar to the size effect in the Fama-French model (though the relation isn't exact).
We do believe that the negative 'size effect' will soon revert, which should help us to resume our outperforming trend," Al Mal Capital said in a recent note.
The phenomenon of small size stocks to provide higher returns than big size stocks even after riskadjustment is termed as size effect (anomaly).

However, it was found that the self-weight of the three-point load on an SENB has a great influence on the results, and the fracture energy determined from different sizes of specimens exhibits a significant size effect. Fracture energy that is not affected by the size of the test specimen cannot be obtained directly from the test [6, 7].
Moreover, because nonaffine motion of atoms at grain boundaries is probably thermally activated, it is believed that the grain size effect on the shear modulus (and thus Young's modulus) should be larger at finite temperature than at 0 K.
Moreover, the flexoelectric structures are theoretically predicted to be more sensitive when scaled down to microdomains [16,17], yet their work did not take the size effect at microscale into account.
In the case of small samples compressing, size effect associated with the roughness of dies appears in addition.

When returns are controlled for the size effect, Reinganum (1981) finds that the observed E/P anomaly disappears.
The size effect on the strength of lumber is based on the weakest link theory (Madsen 1992).
