The recent rally in equities has seen small cap ETFs outpace their larger cousins.
Part of the reason small caps are climbing faster and farther than large caps is because they fell harder in the last down leg. From the beginning of the year to March 9, IJR was down 33% compared to 27% for IVV.
Top holdings in the $3.5 billion IJR fund include Atmos Energy, Senior Housing Property Trust, Piedmont Natural Gas, Micros Systems andVarian Semiconductor.
The top holdings in the $16 billion IVV fund include some of the world’s largest companies including Exxon Mobil, Procter & Gamble, AT&T, Johnson & Johnson and Microsoft.
