NEW YORK ( Minyanville) -- Which S&P cap group performed the best in 2010? Large-cap jumped 12.8% but trailed both mid-cap (24.9%) and small-cap (25.0%). Indeed, there has been nothing small about the hard upward move in pint-sized stocks. In the last 12 months, investors -- when looking around the equity market for places to commit capital -- decided that smaller is better. The iShares Russell 2000 Index ( IWM), which includes holdings like Human Genome Sciences ( HGSI), Tupperware Brands ( TUP), and Riverbed Technology ( RVBD) is up more than 22%. The SPDR S&P 500 ( SPY), which includes holdings like Apple ( AAPL), Microsoft ( MSFT), and Exxon ( XOM), is up 11%.
