About 85% of it is the S&P500 and most of the rest is midcaps. Small caps have value because they have a long term higher return than large and mid caps, and they are less correlated to large caps than midcaps:For the 10 years ending 4/30/00: S&P Midcap correlation to S&P500: 0.87 S&P Small correlation to S&P500: 0.70 9th & 10th decile correlation to S&P500: 0.53Travster
