Gyrations: Growth over Value
The second quarter showed some stark contrasts to earlier periods this year with significant month-by-month differences. While Value was up in Q1 and Growth was down, the second quarter reversed that trend—but not without some wild swings:
- The US saw a return to Growth dominance with consistently strong Quality performance;
- Europe saw a similar Growth outperformance with Quality and Low Vol stocks doing well;
- Emerging Markets saw market-like returns for Value and Growth with outperformance by Small Cap and high Volatility stocks;
- In Australia, Growth and Quality continued to dominate, while High Volatility and Momentum stocks suffered.
In this report, we breakdown why we are seeing differing trends across the globe and uncover the data you need to know from Q2.
