Homework answers / question archive / Growth and value can be interpreted in different ways

Growth and value can be interpreted in different ways. Growth brings the notion that the portfolio focuses upon firms which have excellent future earnings per share (EPS). Small current yield, large price-to-book (P/B) ratio and large price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio are usual features of such portfolios. Value typically brings the idea of portfolios focusing or including only issues showing low P/B ratios, low P/E ratios, excellent dividend yield and undervalued stock prices.
