Here is a common explanation of the small-stock January effect (should it still exist) is tax-loss selling: Late year dumping of losing stocks resulting in an "over-sold" condition.

From a tax-strategy standpoint, the 2012/2013 transition is currently the most uncertain in many years. Unlike most years capital losses may be more valuable to push to the future (assuming capital gains tax rates jump in 2013). In addition, some of 2012's biggest losers are not small cap and are widely held.
