Among domestic equities, small-caps have been the place to be this year. The iShares Russell 2000 ETF (NYSARCA:IWM), the largest exchange-traded fund (ETF) dedicated to smaller domestic stocks, is up nearly 9% year-to-date while the large-cap S&P 500 is higher by just 1.8%.

Smaller stocks and corresponding exchange traded funds have recently been enjoying renewed fanfare and rightfully so. Year-to-date, the iShares Russell 2000 ETF (NYSE: IWM) is up 9.6 percent, or double the gains of the large-cap S&P 500. Smaller small-caps, or micro-caps, are performing even better.
Shares of microcap stocks have surged to record highs, far outpacing the broader market, and that may be a bearish signal. According to Maley, since 2007 there have been six previous instances when the iShares Microcap ETF ( IWC) outperformed the S&P 500 Index (SPX) over the course of several months. The iShares Microcap ETF had an all-time record high close on June 6, up 12% year-to-date.
