Growth stocks have delivered a stellar performance since the stock market retreat in mid-March. In fact, the broader market’s skyrocketing rally has been driven primarily by growth stocks in the technology space. However, many analysts fear that the markets may now have entered bubble territory and that that danger has yet to register with investors. If the markets start correcting, they suggest, overpriced growth stocks will witness a major pullback.

We think that to hedge against a major pullback, it could be wise to invest in value stocks that are fundamentally sound and hold the potential to deliver solid returns in the long run. Many investors have already started rotating away from pricey growth stocks and into fundamentally sound bargains. This is evidenced by SPDR Portfolio S&P 500 Value ETF’s (SPYV) 6.2% returns year-to-date versus the SPDR Portfolio S&P 500 Growth ETF’s (SPYG) 1.4% gains.

(HMC - Get Rating) are currently trading below their peers in terms of price/sales and price/earnings.
