Growth stocks especially have taken a big hit, with the Vanguard Growth ETF down 12.4% over one year. Value stocks have held up better, with the Vanguard Value ETF down about 2.1% over the same time frame. Value stocks tend to be slower-growing companies with steady cash flows and can hold up better as the Federal Reserve raises interest rates to get inflation under control.
In particular, value stocks and dividend stocks haven't seen nearly the declines that their growth stock counterparts are getting hit with. One dividend stock that has reported solid earnings and impressed investors with its forward guidance is the group insurance company Unum Group (NYSE: UNM). Unemployment rates in the U.S. hit 14% in the early days of the pandemic and falling employment levels led to premium growth slow down for Unum Group.
