A Tale of Two Transitions: Russell 1000(R) Index & Russell Greater China Index Reflect Gains Ahead of Political Events in the U.S. & China

SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/06/12 -- On the cusp of two major global political events -- the U.S. presidential election and China's once-in-a-decade leadership transition during the Communist Party Congress -- the Russell 1000® Index of large cap U.S. stocks has returned 15.5% year-to-date and the Russell Greater China Index has returned 14.6% year-to-date through November 2, 2012.

Ahead of the last two U.S. Presidential elections, the Russell 1000® Index did not show year-to-date gains ahead of Election Day, but actually fared better from election day through year-end. In 2008, the Russell 1000® Index returned (-31.1%) from the beginning of the year to Election Day and (-9.5%) after the election to the end of the year. In 2004, the Russell 1000® Index gained 3.1% from the beginning of the year to Election Day, but then gained 8.0% following the election through the end of the year.

The Russell Greater China Index also reflected better market performance following the 2002 Communist Party Congress's announcement of a new leader. The Russell Greater China Index returned (-12.9%) from the beginning of 2002 through the conclusion of the Communist Party Congress on November 15th, while the Index returned (-6.5%) from the conclusion of the Congress through the end of the year.

Interestingly, the Russell 1000® Index actually fared worse after Election Day in 2000, returning (-8.6%) through year-end relative to a 0.8% return year-to-date through the election. The 2000 U.S. Presidential election was marked by uncertainty and a recount in the State of Florida, with the actual winner not being declared until well into December 2000 and was only the fourth election in U.S. history where the eventual winner failed to win the popular vote.
