Not all value stocks are valued the same

20 December 2021

Research Signals - December 2021

At the conclusion of the two-day policy meeting ending 15 December, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), as widely expected, stated that it will accelerate the taper of its bond purchases and anticipates raising the federals funds rate target around mid-2022. Throughout 2021, the value/growth cycle has reacted to the trend in yields as equity and bond markets priced in developing inflation and economic growth expectations. As value stocks stage a comeback in this anticipated increasing rate environment, we take a closer look at the traditional value sectors and find nuances between cyclical and defensive value stocks.

  • During the recent expansion in corporations' stock buyback programs since early 2020, the steadier pace of share repurchases by cyclical value sectors has provided a tailwind heading into 2021
  • Defensive value sectors have seen a higher drag from negative revisions and greater uncertainty in current fiscal year earnings estimates
