Real Questions from Real Subscribers


Q: Heading into the new year, should I tilt my portfolio toward growth stocks or value stocks?

A: Dear Subscriber,

Growth stocks ruled the roost in 2017. Through Dec. 28, the S&P 500 Growth Index had returned 28.2%, versus 15.9% for the S&P 500 Value Index. But the script was flipped in 2016 — value stocks gained 17.4%, compared to only 6.9% for growth stock. The best long-run approach is to not play favorites, in our view. By focusing on stocks offering growth at a reasonable price, or GARP, investors can avoid being on the wrong side of the fence. 

Thanks for your interest,

Bob Sweet, CFA
