NEW YORK ( ETF Expert) -- For the better part of six months, small-company stocks have outperformed large-company stocks. That's not unusual for an unapologetic bull rally. Indeed, if investors are embracing risk, then they are typically willing to pay a higher price to own faster growing corporations.Since the beginning of October, however, riskier holdings have been losing momentum to the large-cap bellwethers. The iShares Russell 2000 (IWM): SPDR S&P 500 Trust (SPY) price ratio demonstrates the relative weakness in smaller company stock shares.
