Value stocks are being employed by investors to diversify their growth-oriented portfolios. The economy’s reopening after a year of coronavirus lockdowns has also hampered the easy transfer of materials from one location to another, causing supply chain issues and exacerbating the cost crisis. Between 1930 and 2010, value equities outpaced growth stocks by 4-5 percentage points on an annual basis. Investors in value companies are hoping that this is the start of another chapter in which mean reversion leads to value stocks beating growth stocks for several years. Apple Inc. and Bank of America Corporation are two of the most popular value stocks on the market.
