The 15-Minute Quarter: Small Cap Takes a Victory Lap
Q1 - 2021 Quarterly Market Summary A full year after the start of the pandemic, we reflect back on the victory lap small cap stocks have taken over the last year. A year ago, the headlines were "at least a fourth of the US economy goes idle from lockdown" and "decade of job gains erased in April". What a difference a year makes. The Dow closes above 33,000 for the first time, and the Russell 2000 up 15% just this year.
