Value investing is coming back. But to me, it never left. Because the minute you craft a portfolio with above-average dividend yields, you’re a value player. Markets go in cycles, but what stays the same is when you’re paid a dividend, you’re being paid to invest no matter what the stock market is doing. Young Research’s Retirement Compounders is your one-stop dividend-centric stock strategy. Welcome aboard.
From The WSJ:
Value investing is coming back.
Over the past decade, growth stocks have outpaced value shares, which usually have lots of tangible assets relative to their market value. In those 10 years, the S&P 1500 Composite Growth Index has an annualized total return of 16.4% through March 31, compared with 14.4% for the overall S&P 1500 and 11.9% for the S&P 1500 Composite Value Index, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices.
“U.S. markets are inherently biased toward growth, with a heavy emphasis on technology stocks,” says Matthew Krajna, co-chief investment officer at Nottingham Advisors.
Recently, though, value has been having a moment and trouncing the richly valued, highflying growth stocks. The S&P 1500 value index is down just 0.2% over the past three months, while the S&P 1500 growth index is down 8.6%. Is it sustainable? Over the past two decades, there have been a lot of false starts for value as a hyperaware Federal Reserve has kept interest rates historically low—effectively bailing out growth investors by making money cheaper. But that isn’t the case now, as the Fed has begun raising rates.
