Five Reasons Growth Stocks May Keep Outperforming

April 2019 
By Matthew D. Hudson, CFA

Today’s market and industry dynamics may pose a structural challenge to the traditionally “mean-reverting” relationship between growth and value.

Matthew D. Hudson, CFA
Equity Portfolio Manager, Wellington Management


Given the stellar performance of some growth equity indices over the past few years, investors have grown increasingly wary of the asset class. However, I believe much of the skepticism is based on generalizations and assumptions informed by top-line metrics. While short-term pullbacks are certainly possible, my view is that the longer-term trajectory of many growth businesses worldwide remains upward.


Important Risks: Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. • Foreign investments may be more volatile and less liquid than U.S. investments and are subject to the risk of currency fluctuations and adverse political and economic developments.
