Catalysts For Value Investing In Today’s Markets

Rising interest rates, inflation, and a prolonged recovery should propel value stocks, says Harris Associates’ David Herro.

As the debate over growth versus value in equities continues, David Herro, Chief Investment Officer – International Equities at Harris Associates, shares his views on economic and market factors that should be favorable for value-oriented investors as the world continues to reopen.

Catalysts include:

  • Rising interest rates benefit some financials, especially in Europe.
  • Prolonged global recovery should lead to sustainable economic growth.
  • Valuation differentials between growth and value stocks should close with inflation and higher interest rates.
