As far as exchange traded funds (ETFs) divvied up by cap size and growth vs. value, it’s been all about the mid-caps so far this year. For the last three months, mid-caps have returned 4.5% in the value category, 8% in the blend and 10.5% in growth.

But now ETF provider SPA says there are a number of factors that are priming the large-caps for strong performance.

The provider, which uses MarketGrader for its investment methodology, says many factors are pointing at the large-cap sector relative to small-caps and U.S. bonds, reports Easier Finance.

Large-caps over the last three months are down 6.2% for value, 0.9% for blend and up 3.1% for growth.
