A good listener is not only popular everywhere, but, after a while, knows something
~ Wilson Mizner (May 19, 1876 - April 03, 1933)
The No. 1 reason growth is doing better than value in small-cap stocks this year is the strength in technology, which is really getting its sea legs. However, small-caps in general have benefited this year from an outflow of money from emerging market Far East funds that had a great run and also from some resetting of investor 401(k) retirement accounts.
