Bernstein and Rosenberg are not alone in seeing strength where there was once weakness. Another highly respected economist and strategist Ed Yardeni recently wrote about a possible market melt-up. Yardeni pointed out that in recent weeks, “The stock market continues to make new record highs, led by stocks with above-average P/E’s.” If you look at market performance year-to-date, there is a big difference among small, mid-sized and large company stocks. Small cap stocks have outdistanced midcap and both have raced ahead of large cap. Yardeni also notes that the pattern of outperformance among smaller company stocks is fairly uniform across different sectors and industries whether its energy, health care or consumer staple stocks.
This week’s WEALTHTRACK guest is tracking these developments and paying particular attention to the divergence in performance. He is value investor Donald Yacktman, President and founder of Yacktman Asset Management and co-portfolio manager of the 20-plus year old Yacktman Fund and the younger Yacktman Focused Fund. Both are rated five-star by Morningstar and have beaten the markets and their peers by wide margins over the years. Yacktman is also a past Morningstar Stock Fund Manager of the Year award winner and a finalist for Morningstar Stock Fund Manager of the Decade.
The last time I interviewed him in January of 2012, he described the values in the market as “amazing.” After the big run up since then he has turned more cautious and is making some changes.
