The Russell indexes of 2009 will have stocks added to the their indexes with far better fundamentals than those of 2008.

Why? Because stocks that will be added in 2009 were not able to be added in 2008 because their market caps were too high to be added.

But the market crash has changed all that, the market caps are  lower for just about all stocks even those with great fundamentals at this time compared to the over-inflated prices of stocks in 2008. 

So we are going to be seeing alot of stocks in the Russell indexes with great fundamentals in 2009, far better than the ones that will be dropped off the indexes.

What about stocks with crappy fundamentals that had too high of a market cap in 2008? Will they also be added?
