>> Anyone else who uses this have this happen or know why the prejudice against small caps? <<I don't know. I think the logic is that since large caps are 90% of the U.S. dollar-weighted stock market, you should hold far more large cap than small cap. But for a younger investor who can take more volatility for higher return, that's hogwash. Having small caps over 30-40 years isn't significantly riskier, returns more, and when overweighted in an asset allocation plan, it increases return AND reduces volatility.I hold almost as much small cap as large cap. Still, small caps have strongly outperformed in the last four years or so, so the big boys are overdue for a relative comeback. Still, that doesn't cause me to change my allocation.#29
