The so-called “rotation trade” continued into early February, after a strong Q4.  This term refers to the market “rotating” from large growth/big tech stocks to small cap and value stocks in the expectation that the vaccines will do the trick and the economy can reopen fully in the near future.

The S&P 500 Index rose 4.4% through Monday (February 8), while the small-cap Russell 2000 climbed 16%, following big gains in Q4.  Even better, the DFA small cap value fund is up over 16.5%![i]

International and emerging markets stocks are also performing well.  The DFA emerging markets core equity fund is up 7% so far this year.[ii]

That’s why we stay diversified–we never know when the “rotation trade” is coming!

SHOOK Best in State Advisor

Forbes Best-In-State Wealth Advisors, developed by SHOOK Research, is based on an algorithm of qualitative criteria, mostly gained through telephone and in-person due diligence interviews, and quantitative data. Those advisors that are considered have a minimum of seven years’ experience, and the algorithm weights factors like revenue trends, assets under management, compliance records, industry experience and those that encompass best practices in their practices and approach to working with clients. Portfolio performance is not a criteria due to varying client objectives and lack of audited data. Neither Forbes or SHOOK receive a fee in exchange for rankings. View Patrice’s full Forbes profile here.
