Smaller Stocks Are Winning Again, But For How Long?

FYI: The stock market’s biggest gains are once again coming from its smallest companies, but the trend might not last much longer.

Smaller-company stocks like Allegiant Travel and AK Steel have been soaring since late December and leading the rest of the market, a sharp reversal from much of the winter, when smaller stocks were plunging more than the rest of the market. The Russell 2000 index of small-cap stocks has jumped 19.8 percent since Christmas Eve versus 16.2 percent for the big stocks in the S&P 500 large-cap index, though neither has returned to the records they set late last year.
