SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/02/14 -- In the news release, "First Quarter US Index Returns: Russell Indexes Tell a Positive Year-to-Date Performance Story in the U.S. as of March 31, With Midcap Stocks Leading the Way and Growth Outperforming Value Across for All Cap Tiers Except Microcap in the First Quarter," issued earlier today by Russell Investments, we are advised by the company that the mentions of "growth outperforming value" should read "value outperforming growth" throughout the release. Because of this, the Indexes table has been updated entirely. Complete corrected text follows.

First Quarter US Index Returns: Russell Indexes Tell a Positive Year-to-Date Performance Story in the U.S. as of March 31, With Midcap Stocks Leading the Way and Value Outperforming Growth Across for All Cap Tiers Except Microcap in the First Quarter

SEATTLE, WA -- April 2, 2014 -- The Russell U.S. Indexes as analyzed in this IDEA reflected slightly positive performance during the first quarter, with all cap tiers positive for 2014 as of March 31. In addition, value-oriented stocks outperformed growth-oriented stocks across small-, mid- and large-caps in the U.S. for the same time period. However, growth-oriented stocks outperformed value in the Russell Microcap Index.

The strongest year-to-date index performance of those analyzed belonged to the Russell MidCap® Index, which returned +3.5% in the first quarter. Midcaps were closely followed by microcaps (+3.0% return for the Russell Micrcocap® Index), then large caps (+2.0% return for the Russell 1000® Index) and small caps (+1.1% return for the Russell 2000® Index).

"U.S. index performance for the first quarter is consistent with our view that 2014 will continue to be a year of validation for the U.S. markets. Markets continue to look for an improvement in fundamentals to justify the increased multiples we saw in 2013," said Stephen Wood, chief markets strategist for Russell Investments. "We see the potential for positive, yet more 'normalized' higher single digit equity market returns in 2014. In this environment, stock selection will be critical for investors and skilled active managers may continue to find potential opportunities."

"The growth and value style cycle has provided investors with a greater level of insight since Russell introduced the first style indexes in 1987," said Russell Indexes senior research director Tom Goodwin. "In the past, growth often outperformed value when the market is relatively optimistic about earnings growth. The current data suggests that cap tier and style selection may also be important, along with stock selection."

Otherwise, they will just end up using public cloud as a hosting platform for their workloads, aka known as “lift and shift.”
