A Vote for Small Cap Stocks?

You've heard us say it many times. It's near impossible to accurately predict which asset class or sector is going to outperform or under perform at any point in time. Therefore, we continue to encourage investors to maintain a broadly diversified portfolio to capture returns among the various areas of the market as they occur.

A recent article from Dimensional Fund Advisors helps underscore the unpredictable nature of returns. Using a recent example, the article notes that small cap stocks led large caps through October 31 by a slim .34% margin (as measured by the Russell 1000 Index 5.82% YTD return vs. Russell 2000 Index 6.16% YTD return). The article goes on to point out that in the eight trading days following the US presidential election, the margin for small cap stocks grew by a considerable margin of 8% (as measured by the Russell 1000 Index 9.99% YTD return vs. Russell 2000 Index 18.00% YTD return).
