I think this is really weird---an equal-weight of S&P500 is identical to a blend of cap-weighted market
indexes.


I don't find it inconceivable that one fund that emphasizes the largest market cap stocks averaged with
another fund that is designed to track the total CRSP US 4000 equities market which puts a greater
emphasis on small capes comes very close to the S&P 500 equal weight results. Not sure I would
depend on it tracking the equal weight in the future. But it might be just as likely to outperform the
SP500 as the equal weight would.
