  • Value Vs. Growth 0 comments

    An interesting trend - U.S. value stocks outperform U.S. growth stocks. Here is some perspective.

    Not long ago (Q2 2012) two prominent authors, Mark Hulbert and John Authers pointed out that growth stocks had been relatively strong for quite a while. Given that value typically outperforms in the long run, both shared interesting observations. The picture has changed since that time.

    Don't Give Up on Value Stocks

    Based on history, value-oriented shares should outperform their growth counterparts in the coming years.

    When value goes out of style

    Throughout history value has outperformed. In the fallout from the bursting of the tech bubble in 2000, value stocks did well.

    When growth is scarce, people will pay a premium for it. So companies that are growing continue to outperform.
