Move over Big Tech, these are the new flag bearers of growth investing

Move over Big Tech, these are the new flag bearers of growth investing

Growth investing has ruled the roost for the last decade. If you wanted astronomical gains, Big Tech was the train you needed to be on. Didn’t matter which carriage, they were all coupled together.   

But that all went belly up this year, with the growth-focused Nasdaq losing roughly a third of its value thanks to inflation, rates and slowing output.  

If 2022 has taught us anything, it’s that a regime change in markets has arrived with a bang.

In the latest episode of The Rules of Investing, Livewire’s David Thornton sits down with Sam Ruiz, a Portfolio Specialist in the Equity Division at T. Rowe Price. Sam hasn’t lost any enthusiasm for growth investing. Instead, he acknowledges that the rulebook that worked so well through the 2010s should be put back on the shelf.

Among many other key insights, Sam believes that the choice between growth and value is not the binary choice many make it out to be. The growth stocks that will excel in this market, and there are many, will share many many attributes with their value-focused cousins.  

Topics discussed include the muscle memory plaguing markets, the changing face of growth, and the importance of capital. He also goes deep on a widely dismissed traditional sector that he believed could grow 2x in the coming years!

How the mighty have fallen. Large cap growth is on the nose. The NASDAQ composite is down roughly 30% this year, and it may have some way to go yet. But growth investing as a style isn’t going anywhere. Rather, it will need to adapt to the times.
