About this talk

The story about a growing gap between the largest and smallest US stocks. The annual Russell US Indexes reconstitution, happening like clockwork every year in June, is a report card of sorts for the US equity markets. And with approximately $9Tn in investor assets tracking the Russell US Indexes, the event is closely watched by key market participants. The 2020 Russell US Indexes Reconstitution, which began with Rank Day May 8th and concludes June 26th, underscores a notable divergence between the large and small ends of the US equity market. In a year in which total US market capitalization decreased by 1%, the market cap of the 10 largest US companies increased by more than 23%. In fact, three companies (Microsoft, Apple & Amazon), surpassed $1Tn in size as of May 8th Rank Day. On the eve of its annual US index rebalance, FTSE Russell has gathered market participants to examine the upcoming event.
