In the debate between growth and value, some may argue value can prevail.
After all, “value” stocks typically boast low price-earnings ratios and other traditional assessment metrics, often looked upon as undervalued relative to its underlying fundamentals. “Growth” stocks are often considered those whose earnings are expected to increase at an above-average rate but don’t necessarily boast the same strong fundamental backdrop.
Chad Morganlander, portfolio manager with Washington Crossing Advisors, recently went overweight value stocks over growth stocks. Here are his reasons why.
Though earnings are coming in quite nicely for growth stocks this quarter, valuations are stretched.
Outsized gains in technology shares, specifically, reduce the relative attractiveness of growth over value at this juncture.

Before markets open Friday, the two energy producers among the 30 Dow Jones industrial stocks will be reporting first-quarter results. Exxon Mobil Corp. (NYSE: XOM) and Chevron Corp. (NYSE: COP) are both expected to show higher revenues and profits, largely as a result of higher commodity prices. But there are other issues at play as well.

Oil prices have been on fire over the past year and recently topped $70 a barrel, which is the highest crude has been since late 2014. That rally in the oil market has helped fuel big-time gains in many oil stocks. Three that stand out are Anadarko Petroleum (NYSE:APC), Hess (NYSE:HES), and ConocoPhillips (NYSE:COP) because each has risen more than 20% this year. They might still have additional upside from here given that all three plan on spending billions of dollars to buy back more of their stock.
