    • "It certainly looks very strong: Virtually every major discussion of small caps' supposed relative strength refers to the famous Ibbotson Associates data set, which shows that small-cap stocks have significantly outperformed large caps since the 1920s
      I reached this conclusion by analyzing data provided on the Website of Dartmouth University finance professor Kenneth French. This comprehensive data set, compiled by French and University of Chicago finance professor Eugene Fama, reflects the performances of virtually all publicly traded U.S. stocks from mid-1926 to the present.

      The average return of the stocks in the portfolio containing the smallest-cap stocks was 17.1% on an annualized basis between mid-1926 and the end of 2005, versus 10.2% for the quintile that had the largest-capitalization stocks -- for an impressive difference of 6.9 percentage points annually.

      It turns out that all of the small caps' extra return comes in January.

      Here are the annualized micro-cap returns by month from July 1926 to December 2004:

      January.........159.82%
      February.........25.10%
      March...............1.21%
      April................12.86%
      May...................6.85%
      June..................6.57%
      July.................22.64%
      August.............8.16%
      September.......-7.75%
      October..........-14.60%
      November..........7.97%
      December.........-1.94%"
