Coruscation: quantfinance Archives
Let's slice the market another way. Growth stocks outperformed value stocks last year. Investment newsletters often argue that this means growth stocks are likely to do so in 2010 as well.

Stocks with the highest ratios are deemed growth stocks, while those with the lowest ratios are considered value stocks. Using these definitions, the finance professors Eugene F. Fama of the University of Chicago and Kenneth R. French of Dartmouth have calculated the returns of both ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
