The Morningstar US Small Cap Core Index is ahead of its large-cap counterpart for the year to date by 4 percentage points as of this writing. Large caps pull ahead over the trailing three- and five-year periods, though. That longer-term outperformance may suggest that small caps have more catching up to do.
