Host: What is the Russell 2000 Index?

David Marotta: The Russell 2000 is the 2000 companies that come after the Russell 1000. So, together they are sometimes called the Russell 3000 but the 2000 is mostly small cap stocks. So, the Russell 2000 is an index that measures what small caps stocks are doing and it is more volatile then the S&P 500 but it also ends up producing better returns.
