Dear Chart of the Day Fan:
Here’s my chart for today. I’ll talk about it shortly after 3:30 p.m. Eastern (12:30 p.m. Pacific) on the Bloomberg Businessweek radio show. Also, I’ll present my Stock of the Day just after 4:05 p.m. (1:05 p.m.) on the radio and later on social media. You can hear me on Bloomberg Radio or see me at Bloomberg Global News on YouTube. Earlier charts are on my Tumblr page.
Thanks for your interest. It’s appreciated.
Smaller U.S. companies may be headed for a record-setting month as they climb out of a stock-market hole. November’s gain for the Russell 2000 Index amounted to 18.2% as of Monday. The biggest gain for a full month is 16.4%, set in February 2000, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. This month’s rally brought the Russell 2000 closer to matching the S&P 500 Index’s year-to-date performance than it had been since January. The gap stood at 1.8 percentage points on Monday after narrowing from 9 points at the start of November and 15.4 points on Sept. 2, when the S&P 500 set a record.
