Julius de Kempenaer Will growth or value come out on top?

Julius de Kempenaer is the creator of relative rotation graphs (RRGs), as well as being the co-founder and director of RRG Research. In his latest article for Stockcharts.com, Julius uses RRGs —which enable investors to distil the relative strength of securities into a single picture and facilitate comparison that might otherwise take weeks — to assess the merits of value over growth.

As de Kempenaer notes, recent weeks have seen the gap between value and growth widen, with the former accelerating away from the latter. This is not a new pattern, however, and the movements noted by the RRGs have been observed by de Kempenaer for a while.

Below is an excerpt from de Kempenaer’s recent article on the subject.



Value starts to accelerate away from growth

This week, the tails for growth and value are crossing over. Value is moving into the leading quadrant while growth crosses from weakening into lagging.

This rotation has been going on for quite some time already and was picked up by the RRG Lines and the rotation of the tails on the Relative Rotation Graph itself around the end of May/start of June. The tail for growth was inside the leading quadrant at that time, but started to roll over and move towards weakening while value, at the time, was inside lagging but started to curl upward and move towards the improving quadrant.

Over the last 13 weeks, this rotation continued and picked up steam, resulting in the crossing over to the other side of the RRG as mentioned above.
