I have them both but don't know what this can mean. I'm assuming that it is positive as I am such a positive Boglehead.

Looks like the small cap index has now taken the lead.
Showing up at the donut shop at 5 am to get them hot out of the oil is an example of successful market timing.

If you don't slice things quite as finely, then you'll see that owning VG's extended market index has given a slightly greater return YTD.
No "value premium" within this size category YTD.
But there is a "small size" premium, since VFINX (S&P500) is +19.91% YTD.
