The S&P 500 Index That Outperforms The Other S&P 500 Index

The author proceeds to point out that there are actually two S&P 500s – and while they are comprised of the same 500 stocks, one (the traditional S&P 500 Index) is capitalization-weighted and the other is equal-weighted. Most importantly, the equal-weighted version has shown a strong propensity to outperform the capitalization-weighted version.
