UPDATE: These 20 value stocks are disguised as bargain growth stocks
By Philip van Doorn, MarketWatch
Some companies in the 'value' camp are increasing sales rapidly while becoming more profitable
Should you favor value stocks or growth stocks?
It's an old argument.
If you're adept at picking long-term winners -- and most investors are not -- there's no question that growth stocks are better. But if you want to buy stocks that are on sale or lower the volatility risk of your portfolio, value stocks can still make you a lot of money.
We have identified 20 rapidly growing companies that have also become more profitable. And the surprise is that they can reasonably be considered growth stocks.
MarketWatch's Mark Hulbert pointed out that value stocks are cheaper (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/these-stocks-havent-been-so-cheap-since-2000-2017-09-12) relative to growth stocks than they have ever been, except for the internet bubble of 2000.
