I was just clicking around on WSJ On Line, when I came across a great new page of resources:
Markets Data Index [1]. Tons of good stuff, charts, resources.

I randomly click on one page [2] — and found this chart on market capitalization: "Small caps, stocks with market capitalizations of less than $1.5 billion, offer investors a chance to
outperform the broad market, but are prone to price swings."

In the Long Term Small-cap stocks
vs. large-cap stocks in good
market times
and bad. One
size usually
dominates at
any given time.
