S&P 500 is defined as an index of 500 stocks chosen for market size, liquidity and industry grouping, among other factors. The S&P 500 is designed to be a leading indicator of U.S. equities and is meant to reflect the risk/return characteristics of the large cap universe.

The Russell Microcap Index is a capitalization weighted index of 2,000 small cap and micro-cap stocks that captures the smallest 1,000 companies in the Russell 2000, plus 1,000 smaller U.S.-based listed stocks. It is not possible to invest directly in an index.

The Russell 2000 Index is an index measuring the performance of approximately 2,000 small-cap companies in the Russell 3000 Index, which is made up of 3,000 of the biggest U.S. stocks. The Russell 2000 serves as a benchmark for small-cap stocks in the United States.

Cash Flow is defined as a revenue or expense stream that changes a cash account over a given period.

Micro-cap and small capitalization companies typically have relatively lower revenues, limited product lines, lack of management depth, higher risk of insolvency and a smaller share of the market for their products or services than larger capitalization companies. Generally, the share prices of stocks of micro-cap and small capitalization companies are more volatile than those of larger capitalization companies. Also, the returns of micro-cap and small capitalization company stocks may vary, sometimes significantly, from the returns of the overall market. In addition, micro-cap and small capitalization company stocks tend to perform poorly during times of economic stress. Relative to large capitalization company stocks, the stocks of micro-cap and small capitalization companies are thinly traded, and purchases and sales may result in higher transactions costs.
