Small Talk | November 9 to November 13, 2020
At the “top-down” level the week past was a wild one with investors jumping back into “value” stocks in a move triggered by positive COVID-19 vaccine developments. Of course, what the market uses as a proxy for “value” is stocks priced on low multiples of their earnings or book value relative to the market - the data above shows how such stocks enjoyed a great resurgence during the week. But whether these stocks are good value (or good buying) is another question altogether.
