A Bifurcated Market in Two Charts - Real Time Insight

By
A A A

Your opinion of the stock market so far in 2014 might be considerably different from someone else's depending on what type of stocks you're watching.

For instance, the often-quoted Dow Jones Industrial Average and S&P 500 indexes, which represent primarily large cap stocks, recently hit new all-time highs. However, the small cap Russell 2000 index is down more than 8% from its all-time highs and is in the red for the year.

And within the small cap arena, "growth" stocks have been hit particularly hard.

Of course, these are also the same stocks that soared last year (the Russell 2000 Growth index rose more than 42% last year). But so far in 2014, large caps are beating small caps, and value is beating growth. In other words, the tortoise is beating the hare.

Do you think this bifurcated market will continue as we head into the summer months?
