Value Stocks to Continue Growing: Strategists

Value stocks are the best place for investors to make money, said Craig Callahan, founder and president of ICON Advisers, and Mark Matson, founder and CEO of Matson Money.

“Value’s been an uncatchable target and we expect that to continue over the next year,” Callahan told CNBC.

“Over the last two years, the leadership has been from anything cyclical or economically sensitive and we expect that to continue,” he continued.

Callahan said he likes industrials and energy.

In the meantime, Matson said investors should own value stocks because there’s been “no 20-year period in existence where value stocks didn’t beat growth stocks.”
