The small-cap Russell 2000 index was up 0.7 percent after three straight declines. The index has several times approached correction territory, a decline of 10 percent from a recent high, only to bounce back slightly. Investors’ defensive posture has been reflected by a sector rotation into utilities, telecoms and energy, which have outperformed the broader S&P 500 over the past three months. Campbell Soup Co fell 2.9 percent to $43.81 and ranked as the S&P 500’s worst performer.
