Materials & Processing, Consumer Discretionary and Financial Services Sectors Have Led U.S. Small Cap Russell 2000(R) Index Gains in 2012 (as of 12/4)

SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/06/12 -- The Materials & Processing sector (+20.6%) within the U.S. small cap Russell 2000® Index has reflected the largest sector gain year-to-date through December 4, 2012, outperforming its parent index by 8.2%, as six of the nine Russell 2000® Index sectors returned more than 10% for this same time period. Additionally, the Consumer Discretionary (+19.9%) and Financial Services (+17.5%) sectors have experienced strong returns, outperforming the Russell 2000® Index by 7.5% and 5.1% respectively year-to-date as of December 4, 2012.

Conversely, the Energy sector of the Russell 2000® Index posted the only negative return year-to-date, reflecting a loss of (-9.0%) through December 4, 2012.

"Relative strength in the Financial Services, Consumer Discretionary and Materials & Processing sectors within the Russell 2000® Index indicated how more cyclically-sensitive industries have performed in this risk-on, risk-off environment," said Stephen Wood, Chief Market Strategist for Russell Investments. "Historically, small caps have anticipated market recoveries: while small caps have lagged thus far in 2012, should we see outperformance in these sectors it could be an indicator of investor confidence heading into 2013."
