One salient feature of this rally has been widely ignored by most market pundits - and we discussed this in our last midweek report. This point is that Small Cap U.S. stocks have made all time highs, just as they have every year since 2099, affirming the uptrend that has been in place since the 2009 low. In addition, we showed that Small Cap US stocks have been a better investment than Emerging Markets names. We show those charts (of EEM and IJR) below, relative to the SPY.
