Abstract

We conduct a comprehensive study of the cyclical movements in economic fundamentals for value and growth firms. We document that the fundamentals of value firms are more adversely affected by negative business cycle shocks than those of growth firms. The differential response between value and growth firms is mostly significant. We also present some evidence suggesting that lack of flexibility in capital investment underlies the more cyclical behavior of value firms.
