Over the really long haul, ‘value’ tends to beat ‘growth’ by a mile.
Over the last decade or so, that relationship hasn’t exactly held true. In fact, so-called value stocks have underperformed by a wide margin. Investors have continued to favor growth stocks based on one reason: high per share earnings potential and realization.
However, it looks like the relationship is starting to turn toward value stocks’ favor.
Stocks within the investment style are once again seeing some hefty earnings growth. For dividend investors, this could be the signal they are looking for. The time for value stocks could be now.
