Another Value vs Growth article to ponder
I'm still holding true to my value/SCV tilt and I think that it still a wise long-term strategy. Here's what Investor Solutions has to say about it.
The data used in this analysis was only twenty seven years because it was based on the Russell 1000 index which dates back to 1979. Longer historical data is available via other indexes and the results are the same. There is a value premium that is consistent domestically, internationally, and in emerging markets as well, in both small and large equities. For some reason individual investors are building their portfolios in the exact opposite manner by overweighting growth stocks. Maybe they like lower returns and higher volatility, but, I doubt it.
