2022 is when investors will finally return to value stocks. Really
Stop us if you’ve heard this before: Market strategists are predicting that 2022 will finally be the year when investors choose value stocks -— like banking, oil, consumer, industrial and healthcare companies — over Big Techs, such as Apple (AAPL), Amazon (AMZN) and Facebook owner Meta (FB).
It’s been a common refrain among stock pickers for several years. But the so-called FAANGs, as well as Microsoft (MSFT), Tesla (TSLA) and Nvidia (NVDA), continue to dominate the market weighting of the S&P 500. So will investors really finally quit these leaders of the Nasdaq for cheaper bargain stocks?
For what it’s worth, that appeared to be happening Monday. The Dow soared more than 700 points, or 2.1%, led by gains in Walgreens (WBA), Amgen (AMGN), American Express (AXP), Boeing (BA), Visa (V) and Coca-Cola (KO). But the Nasdaq was up by less than half that amount.
