Tom Taggart, a spokesperson for BGI, said the short-term capital gain for the iShares S&P 500, at almost 7 cents a share, is due to the new fund experiencing heavy creation/redemption activity as a result of recent significant contributions. The iShares S&P 500 received another $500 million in new contributions last Friday, 12/15/2000. In comparison, the Vanguard Group estimated zero year-end distributions for the Vanguard 500 Index Fund as of 11/30/2000.

The iShares Russell 2000 will experience total distributions of about 43 cents per share, while the Vanguard Small-Cap Index Fund is estimated to have total year-end distributions of $2.81 per share, again as of 11/30/2000.
