The following chart shows long-term out performance of Value stocks (both large and small) versus growth stocks.
As the article explains:
This reversal of fortune [from Growth to Value] can be swift and unexpected... Consider, for example, the decade that ended in October 2000. Growth stocks in the United States had outperformed value stocks by 2.1% per year over the preceding 10 years. Yet just seven months later, a look in the rearview mirror provided a completely different picture of trailing 10-year performance: Value stocks had outperformed growth stocks by 2.4% annually... Remarkably, in the five months from November 2000 to March 2001, value stocks outpaced growth stocks by a whopping 35%.
