A “Heads Up” from Sam Stovall

edited February 2022 in Other Investing
“Deterioration in small-cap stocks has been documented for months, and now that weakness has spread to their mid-cap cousins … Both mid- and small-caps had been lagging large-caps from a price perspective, as seen in the relative performance charts for the S&P 400 Mid-Cap Index and the S&P 600 Small-Cap Index …

“Small-caps have weakened significantly since July, followed by mid-caps dating from late November. Typically, deteriorating health begins with small-caps and spreads to take mid-caps and finally large-caps. When the latter falls, the market usually can no longer resist the sellers. For now, elevated caution remains warranted.”
