Choosing between growth stocks and value stocks is one of the biggest decisions for investors currently. Over the course of the last century, value stocks have outperformed their growth counterparts. However, since the Great Recession, growth stocks have delivered greater returns.

Growth stocks’ strength has been  particularly evident  over the past year thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. During this period, the SPDR Portfolio S&P 500 Growth ETF (SPYG) has returned 28%, while the SPDR Portfolio S&P 500 Value ETF (SPYV) has returned 1.2%. While many believe that an expected economic recovery will lead to some rotation by investors away from growth stocks into value stocks, growth stocks are expected to continue performing well this year also.

After delivering solid returns in 2020, growth stocks FMC Corporation (FMC), KAR Auction Services, Inc. (KAR), and Revolve Group, Inc. (RVLV) still have plenty of upside  this year. These companies have been working on improving their products, which we think should continue to drive their growth.
