Growth has outperformed value in recent years, but will that outperformance continue? Portfolio Manager David Giroux thinks so. Many value sectors, such as financials, semiconductors, and automobiles, are highly sensitive to economic downturns. Other value sectors, such as telecommunications, will be challenged by the emergence of new disruptive forces in the economy.
- Growth has outperformed value for a sustained period, and much of that outperformance has been driven by earnings growth (as opposed to multiple expansion).
- Much of the value universe faces the challenge of either stagnant growth or growth that could be difficult to sustain moving forward.
- On a long-term basis Mr. Giroux favors a portfolio that is more positioned for growth versus value.
