Introduction: Part I Recap

In Growth vs. Value Part 1 Kailash discussed the degree to which growth stocks had outperformed their value peers and recounted the historical record of value vs. growth subsequent to such periods. We highlighted that over the last three years both the Russell 1000 Growth (R1G) and Russell 2000 Growth (R2G) indices had outperformed the Russell 1000 Value (R1V) and Russell 2000 Value (R2V) respectively by amounts that have historically resulted in subsequent mean reversion.

Figure 1 below is republished from part 1 and breaks the growth vs. value story into 3 stages over the last 3 decades. Stage 1 saw growth trounce value by 319% in the 1990’s only to give all of it back in the first 6 months of Stage 2. What is remarkable about this is that in the first 6 months of Stage 2 growth was cut in half while value stocks stood still (this time period is represented by the bracket). From the peak of August 2000 to the trough of May 2007, value outperformed growth by 280%. What stands out to us about the reversal from the trough of 2007 is that it took over 10 years for growth to return to breakeven. However, since December 2016 growth has outperformed value by 2.5x annually, a level that closely approximates the outperformance seen in the subsequent three-year period prior to the peak of the tech bubble.
