Is it time to rethink value vs. growth?

Senior Manager, Client Solutions Group

How should investors think about the value-growth rotation cycle after a decade of disappointing returns for value stocks? In this white paper, Capital Group researchers Nisha Thakrar and P. Brett Hammond explain why investors should take a fresh look at style-based investing.

Key takeaways:

  • The rise of the tech behemoths and the increasing value of intangible assets are upending traditional notions of growth and value stocks.

  • Fundamental valuation frameworks need to adapt to these new secular forces.

  • Investors can benefit from looking across the style spectrum for attractive opportunities — regardless of whether a rotation is here to stay.
