    Branson’s ‘space’ stock is the latest sign of market euphoria

    Few things say Growth Stock Boom on Wall Street as much as “space ships,” “Sir Richard Branson” and “$100 million in forecast losses.” Let alone all three together. The colorful British tycoon is bringing his space travel venture Virgin Galactic to the stock market in a complex $2 billion merger with a so-called “blank check” public company. Stock in the listing vehicle, called Social Capital Hedosophia (IPOA) jumped 26 cents, or 2.9%, to $10.69 after the announcement on Tuesday.

    Value stocks are trading at the steepest discount in history

    There’s never been a worse time in history to be a value investor. Value investing is a strategy whereby investors look for stocks that are underpriced relative to a fundamental analysis of the companies worth, and one that was made famous by Berkshire Hathaway chief executive Warren Buffett. While value investing helped make Buffett the third richest man in the world, it’s been a losing strategy since the financial crisis, when stock markets have been driven more by macroeconomic events than company fundamentals, and dominated by fast-growing, technologically innovative companies like Netflix Inc. (NFLX)  and Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) with sky-high valuations that value investors typically avoid.

    10 Growth ETFs to Buy for Backside Protection, Too

    Growth exchange-traded funds (ETFs) are as straightforward as they sound: They're portfolios of growth stocks.By definition, a growth stock is any company with an above-average growth profile. In other words, they are companies whose revenues and earnings are expanding faster than the market average. They also often pay little or no dividends, opting instead to reinvest their cash flow in the business to maintain their growth.But they have their pitfalls; namely, when growth slows. Recently, outdoor gear maker Canada Goose (GOOS) lost more than 30% of its value in a single day after reporting lower-than-expected fourth-quarter earnings. Although revenues rocketed 40% higher year-over-year and profits jumped 20%, it still marked the company's slowest growth in eight quarters, prompting fears its tremendous growth was coming to an end. Whether that's true is up for debate. But if you owned GOOS stock, you couldn't have been pleased about the one-day plunge.This is why owning growth ETFs makes so much sense. By diversifying your growth-stock holdings through a fund, you're protecting your downside.Here are 10 growth ETFs to buy if you want to cut back on the risk of owning individual shares.

    5 Vanguard Smart Beta ETFs To Consider for Your Portfolio

    The first aspect to touch upon was the limitations of a market cap weighted index, which would then warrant the need for smart beta and factor strategies. While these indexes provided simple, low-cost solutions, the need for even greater scrutiny is necessary in the quest for more alpha —a case for smart beta. In addition, the simplicity of buying a broad-based market index has a concentration of risk, and should a market correction ensue comparable to that witnessed in the fourth quarter, investors are left vulnerable.
