Greetings CentexHorn,

In general wouldn't a Russell 2000 Value index be less likely to mirror the S&P 500 index than the Russell 2000 Growth index?

No, in theory they should be equally diverse as they are a separate group of stocks usually. However, I have no links to back up that idea nor do I know of any place to find that data although I would note there is a 30% overlap between those Russell indices.

One intriguing note though is that there is something called the "Small-cap growth anamoly" that is discussed in that may be of some interest.
