Value Investing – Dead or Alive?

October 22, 2020

In our last commentary, we highlighted one of our concerns for the market was the top-heavy nature of the S&P 500, especially in regards to large-cap tech and growth stocks that have driven market performance recently. We were delighted to have received feedback from investors who feel they are overexposed to these areas and are – sensibly – searching for alternative strategies that may potentially offer superior results going forward. Since the market’s inception, there is a bad habit that has plagued investors repeatedly, and that is to abandon the principles of value investing and not implementing a “margin of safety” during periods of market excitement (Hawley). By doing so, many investors may pay a price for their speculation as “overpaying for value” which can result in unsatisfactory financial outcomes.  Back on July 29th, we wrote a commentary highlighting the potential opportunity in small-cap value companies (which is available to download and view on our website). We continue to see evidence that both small cap and value stocks have potential upside going forward. We would like to further comment on the re-emergence of value and how we believe that including value strategies in a portfolio can potentially reduce risk and add opportunities for outperformance.
