4 Undervalued Stocks With Momentum

These wide-moat names have all returned twice as much as the market this year but remain undervalued by our metrics.

Here at Morningstar, we talk a lot about the dangers of chasing performance. For instance, our annual analysis of the investor returns of mutual funds illustrates that while the gap between investor returns and total returns has been shrinking, investors still often make timing mistakes--and that drags down their investor returns over time. In fact, we've even studied how adding "unloved" categories (those mutual fund categories that aren't currently popular) to the fringes of a portfolio can add value.

As such, an article suggesting that investors consider stocks that've soared seems out of character from Morningstar. But hear us out.

Maintaining independence and editorial freedom is essential to our mission of empowering investor success. We provide a platform for our authors to report on investments fairly, accurately, and from the investor’s point of view. We also respect individual opinions––they represent the unvarnished thinking of our people and exacting analysis of our research processes. Our authors can publish views that we may or may not agree with, but they show their work, distinguish facts from opinions, and make sure their analysis is clear and in no way misleading or deceptive.

To further protect the integrity of our editorial content, we keep a strict separation between our sales teams and authors to remove any pressure or influence on our analyses and research.
