Buying Cheap Assets: Finding Them Now

September 10, 2021

Large-cap U.S growth stocks, particularly tech stocks have been the overwhelming winners of the last decade. They now dominate the market. The top ten S&P 500 stocks, including the FAANGs, account for more than 25% of the index’s total market value, a concentration that worries some market watchers because it is reminiscent of other market tops such as the dot-com bubble when internet stocks made up over 30% of the S&P and the credit bubble when banking stocks reached more than 20%.
With the exception of short-lived spurts value stocks, small-cap stocks and international stocks have badly lagged.
This week’s guest believes the days of this concentrated outperformance by large-cap growth stocks are numbered and suggests some underloved and under-owned alternatives. He is financial thought leader, innovator, and investor Robert Arnott, Chairman of the Board of Research Affiliates, which he founded in 2002 as a self-described “research-intensive asset management firm that focuses on innovative products.”
Among the innovations that he has pioneered is fundamental indexation: building indexes with stocks based on the size of their fundamentals, such as sales, profits, cash flow, book value, and dividends – not their stock price. Research Affiliates has created numerous fundamental indexes for a wide variety of markets and asset classes around the world.
Arnott will discuss why he believes this long era of U.S. large-cap growth dominance could be coming to an end and what could take its place.
