"The choice is not between value and growth, but between value today and value tomorrow." — Howard Marks
A less fancy way of saying it:
Anything that makes money is good.
Reminds me of how folks say the best growth stocks of tomorrow are, for all intents and purpose, undervalued today. Gotta throw in a book recommendation: Marks' 2018 book The Most Important Thing: Uncommon Sense for The Thoughtful Investor
