Investopedia explains 'Russell 3000 Value Index'


The Russell 3000 Index is comprised of the Russell 1000 Index and the Russell 2000 Index. To assign growth and value weights within the Russell 3000 Index, the Russell Investment Group ranks the stocks within the Russell 1000 and 2000 Indexes, respectively. Stocks are ranked by their book-to-price (B/P) ratio and their forecast long-term growth mean according to the Institutional Brokers' Estimate System (IBES).

Once ranked, the Russell Investment Group uses a non-linear probability method to separate stocks into the growth and value styles. In general, a stock with a higher ranking is considered value, and a stock with a lower ranking is considered growth. Stocks in between have both growth and value features.
