what do you mean by shrinking small cap ratios?
people paying less for the same thing, less for eps, less for growth, less for sales.

small caps had been on a tear for 4.5 years and now they're not http://invest.kleinnet.com/bmw1/stats16/%5ERUT.html

i don't have a ready chart for R2K earnings, but I believe despite current market jitters they are still trending up, so the amount people are prepared to pay is falling, most of the key ratios like P/E are compressing
