Value versus growth stocks


Value versus growth stocks

In this week’s video insight Tim takes a closer look at value stocks and growth stocks. On the whole, over long periods of time, it looks as though a value investor has enjoyed a significantly better investment experience than a growth investor. Long-term averages are not the whole story, however.  Over short periods of time, value can underperform growth significantly.


Tim joined Montgomery in July 2012 and is a senior member of the investment team. Prior to this, Tim was an Executive Director in the corporate advisory division of Gresham Partners, where he worked for 17 years. Tim focuses on quant investing and market-neutral strategies.

  1. An interesting and timely comparison Tim. More broadly, I must say that the topics that Roger, yourself and the team have covered, particularly recently, have been most interesting and informative. Your insights are always appreciated.

  2. This, as every other time, will not be different. We seem to be in the Templeton stage of optimism at present. Some stocks qualify for euphoria, and one of them, WTC, has seen a big price decrease in the last 2 days post – earnings report.
