Should You Buy Value Stocks and Sell Growth Stocks in 2022?

It's less than a month into 2022, and already the U.S. stock market is performing differently than in 2021 or 2020. As of market close on Jan. 19, the Vanguard Value exchange-traded fund (ETF) (NYSEMKT: VTV) was down less than 1% for the year, while the S&P 500 was down nearly 5% and the Vanguard Growth ETF (NYSEMKT: VUG) was down over 9%. For now, at least, value stocks seem to be replacing growth stocks as the new market outperforming group.
