Value stocks have generally been outperforming growth for the past 5 years, but is growth ready for a comeback? When looking at historical trends of growth vs. value it appears that there is a visible cycle that occurs. The image below illustrates this more clearly.
So does this mean you should add more growth to your portfolio? Well, it is impossible to predict when one style will outperform the other, but excluding growth stocks or funds from your investment mix could have an effect on your returns. It may be time to review your investments and see if there is an opportunity to begin to introduce a little more growth into the mix.
