UBS Quality Growth at a Reasonable Price Stocks Crush the S&P 500: 3 to Buy Right Now

Performance that counts on Wall Street is performance that is measured in years, not in months, and many investors make the mistake of jumping into hot new portfolio ideas because they are trendy, and they end up getting hurt. One thing is for sure, passive index investing, which has been all the rage for years, could come into a period of underperformance, especially if the markets continue to trade sideways, like it has since February of 2015. Stock picking with an eye toward total return could become huge.

We have covered the UBS Quality Growth At A Reasonable Price (Q-GARP) portfolio for years, and with good reason. Since its inception in 2007, on a cumulative total return basis, it has outperformed the S&P 500 137.7% to 69.5%, a relative performance versus the iconic index of 68.3%.

While not making any changes to the portfolio this month, the UBS team does highlight the portfolio winners and losers for the first half of 2016. We think that the three stocks that underperformed could be outstanding picks for the second half of 2016, and they also are offering investors excellent entry points.
