IMF Data Mapper "World Economic Outlook" April 2018.

Sources: Worldscope via FactSet, The Brandes Institute, as of 6/30/2016. Using data from 1980 to 2016, the study showed that over the long term, a value premium was evident across regions. The emerging markets sample consisted of publicly traded companies domiciled in countries not categorized as developed countries (excluding the smallest 50% of companies). Stocks were first divided into 10 deciles based on price-to-book. Aggregate performance of each decile was tracked over the next five years. This process was then repeated each year. For emerging markets stocks decile 10 value stocks outperformed decile 1 glamour stocks by an average annualized rolling five-year return of 13.59% as measured by their price-to-book ratios. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results.
