    Russell 2000 company debt hits all-time high, can small-cap woes get any worse?

    The Russell 2000 index (RUT) which tracks companies with a median market capitalization of $784 million, remains 13% below its record high last August, while companies in the index appear mired in an earnings recession, after profits fell by double digits in the first quarter and look set to fall by 9% in the second, according to Bank of America. What’s more, the debt concerns that have dogged larger companies in the S&P 500 (SPX) and Russell 1000 indexes (RUI) are growing acute in the small cap space, after debt levels reached an all-time high for the index in the first quarter of 2019, according to an analysis by RBC. Lori Calvasina, head of U.S. equity strategy at RBC wrote in a recent research report that “Even before the [spike in the first quarter] .

    What's Ailing Small-Caps? A Sector Differential Solves The Mystery

    Small-cap stocks and exchange traded funds are lagging their large-cap counterparts this. Entering Wednesday, IWB was 17.2% year to date, outpacing the small-cap IWM by 510 basis points. Over the past 90 days, IWB is up 1.6% while IWM is lower by 2.7%, a chasm that's prompting some market observers to speculate that weakness in small-cap stocks is portending a broader market slump, or worse, a recession.

    Small-cap stocks are badly lagging the S&P 500 — is that a warning sign?

    Small-cap stocks have been lagging the market in recent months. What is sure is that the S&P 500 index (SPX) has been one of the strongest market averages in recent months. Over the same three months, the Russell 2000 index (RUT)  (a widely-used benchmark for the small-cap sector) lost 0.8% and the iShares Micro-Cap ETF (IWC) lost 3.4%.

    Market's Late Summer Roller Coaster Ride Continues, and 2 Toymakers Stumble

    Just like clockwork, the markets are back to mid-summer roller coaster ride territory. At this point it's not like Disney's Expedition Everest, Space Mountain or Rock n' Roller Coaster, but just enough to make you feel that you are definitely on some kind of ride, and it's not exactly unpleasant, at least at this point. Since my Wednesday column ran the S&P 500 has experienced two more "volatile" days (with volatility defined as up or down at least 1%), and both have been of the positive variety.

    U.S. small-cap stocks under renewed threat from tariffs

    Last week's announcement of more U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods may have undermined the prospects for small-cap stocks to rebound this year, even after a brief respite from the Federal Reserve's recent interest-rate cut. Just a day after the Fed cut interest rates for the first time in more than a decade, President Donald Trump vowed on Aug. 1 to impose 10% tariffs on an additional $300 billion of Chinese goods beginning on Sept. 1.

    Still Weighing Fed's Words, But Yum, Verizon And GM Earnings Also In Focus

    Proof of that might be yesterday’s session, when stocks cratered despite the Fed lowering interest rates. Many investors wanted the Fed to signal the start of a prolonged rate-cutting cycle, not just a simple rate cut, but that didn’t happen. At least that was the takeaway from Fed Chairman Jerome Powell’s press conference, though he did try to walk back initial comments that many interpreted as him saying this was a one-and-done easing.

    Dow, S&P 500 fall after after Fed rate cut, but stock market breadth remains positive.

    The Dow Jones Industrial Average sank to a triple-digit loss in afternoon trading Wednesday, after the Federal Reserve's decision to cut its target on overnight interest rates, but the stock market's breadth remained positive, helped by strength in small-capitalization stocks. The number of advancing stock outnumbered decliners 1,540 to 1,333 on the NYSE and 1,610 to 1,331 on the Nasdaq exchange. Where breadth data showed some weakness was in the larger, more active stocks, as volume of advancing stocks represented just 45.2% of total volume on the Big Board and 36.7% of total volume on the Nasdaq. Meanwhile, the Dow fell 148 points, or 0.5%, with 25 of 30 components losing ground. Just before the Fed's rate decision, the Dow was up about 14 points. The S&P 500 gave up 0.5% and the Nasdaq Composite shed 0.4%, while the Russell 2000 of small-cap stocks rose 0.4%.

    Fed rate cuts could help cheap U.S. small-cap stocks gain favor

    Shares of smaller U.S. companies have gotten cheap over the past year, significantly lagging their large-cap counterparts, and could be poised for a turnaround following a highly anticipated interest-rate cut from the Federal Reserve. Worries about a slowdown in economic growth have soured investor sentiment toward small-cap companies, which are more domestically focused than large-cap multinationals. Profits for small-cap companies have also been squeezed by higher input costs as a result of the U.S.-China trade war, so the group is more vulnerable to an aging business cycle.
