Russolillo says value funds globally are on track to post their worst performance this year … relative to growth funds since before the financial crisis.

He goes on to say that growth stocks … the ones that have the momentum behind … the ones that just keep going up and keep defying the odds … are the ones that are significantly outperforming.

This trend is not new for value investors however Russolillo also says, this is the one huge caveat when we talk about this debate because … we’ve seen this play out time and time again … you go back to the great depression … you go back to the tech bubble and the late nineties and early two thousands … you go back ten years ago to the global financial crisis … and before these periods happened … you saw growth outperform so much to the point that people would say … oh value investing is dead it can’t come back it’s impossible … and sure enough … after you had those big market downturns … value is what tends to outperform when you have huge pullbacks or huge bear markets … and even after those bear markets you tend to see value again continue to do well.
