    Russell 2000 hits record in early trading

    The Russell 2000 index of small-capitalization stocks rose on Monday, advancing to its latest in a series of records as investors cheered an easing of U.S.-China trade tensions. While smaller companies are seen as having less exposure to trade issues, due to their higher concentration of U.S. revenue exposure, the market segment has rallied consistently for weeks, easily outperforming its larger-cap peers.

    Here’s why small-cap stocks can continue to beat their large-cap peers

    Small-cap stocks are on a roll, hitting a string of records while their large-cap peers remain stuck in a narrow trading range, and the run of outsize gains may just be getting under way. The Russell 2000 (^RUT), the most popular index for small-cap stocks, has risen in 11 of the past 14 trading days, and it posted its third straight record close on Friday. Morgan Stanley said that the U.S. economy was in the later stages of its economic cycle, which it noted had historically been a weak period for small and midcap stocks in past cycles “because wage pressures and other costs tend to hit these companies harder as they have fewer levers to pull to offset” them.
