Plenty of folks appear on various financial media outlets year after year proclaiming &ldquo;this is a stock picker&#39;s market.&rdquo;</p> <p>The thing is, stock-picking is difficult. Worse yet, data suggest there are not many great stock pickers out there. S&amp;P Dow Jones data show 82 percent of active large-cap managers failed to beat the S&amp;P 500 over the past decade.</p> <p>Maybe in theory, active management should work more to investors&#39; advantage with small caps. The reality is, active small-cap managers are actually worse at beating their benchmark than their large-cap counterparts. Over the same 10-year period, more than 87 percent of small-cap active managers lagged the S&amp;P SmallCap 600 Index, according to S&amp;P Dow Jones.</p> <p><bzrelatedlink>Related Link: <a href="http://www.benzinga.com/analyst-ratings/analyst-color/15/08/5793043/citi-double-downgrades-wisdomtree-to-sell-slashes-target">Citi Double-Downgrades WisdomTree To Sell, Slashes Target</a></bzrelatedlink></p> <p>Investors searching for small-cap exposure can eschew the usual cap-weighted funds, while sticking with the advantages of passive management and the exchange traded funds wrapper.
