The Russell 2000's expected 2012 bottom should be 700 or higher, according to 68% of respondents in Credit Suisse's survey of small and mid-cap buy-side specialists. The round figure of 700 garnered the most votes of any number - it's a better outlook than the bank's 2011 Q3 survey, but still 10% below today's level.
