author/source: Valuentum Editorial Staff

Comparisons between growth versus value stocks may never go away, but President of Investment Research Brian Nelson explains why you should know better than to think stocks can easily be divided up as such. He talks about this, as well as the pitfalls of ROE (return on equity) and how to think about the time horizon. Running time: ~10 minutes. 

Tickerized for companies in the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the following "growth" ETFs: IWF, VUG, IVW, IWO, IWP, IJK, VBK, SCHG, VOT, IJT, EFG, IUSG, MGK.
