Terms of Use:     

Value stocks are those securities which are selling at a perceived low price to their values. They typically maintain a lower price/earnings ratio and a lower price/book ratio than growth stocks, whose "value" is more questionable. Generally, value stocks pay higher dividends. They are stocks which are perceived by a particular investment professional to be undervalued by the market, and may produce higher dividend yields than growth stocks.

Growth stocks appear attractive based on the potential earnings growth of its company.  They generally pay little or no dividends, and their total return is primarily contingent upon their market appreciation.
