In this episode of ETF Spotlight, I speak with John Davi, founder & CEO of Astoria Portfolio Advisors. Astoria is an investment management firm that specializes in ETF managed portfolios.

2019 was a banner year for stocks, the Dow was up 23%, the S&P gained 29%, while the Nasdaq was the big winner with a return of 35%. We discuss the market outlook for 2020.

Growth stocks have significantly outperformed their value peers during the decade, as investors have been chasing growth at any price.

Astoria favors US value stocks for 2020. Can value finally make a comeback after lagging growth for so many years? Their picks include the Alpha Architect U.S. Quantitative Value ETF (QVAL - Free Report) , the WisdomTree U.S. MidCap Dividend Fund (DON - Free Report) and the Invesco KBW Bank ETF (KBWB - Free Report) .

US stocks continued to outperform the rest of the world during the past decade. Astoria’s preference for 2020 is international markets, emerging markets value stocks, and high-quality dividend growth stocks in Europe and Japan.

Take a look at the WisdomTree International Hedged Quality Dividend Growth Fund (IHDG - Free Report) , the SPDR S&P Emerging Markets Dividend ETF (EDIV - Free Report) and the iShares MSCI China ETF (MCHI - Free Report)

Gold topped $1,600 per ounce earlier this month, after Iranian missile attacks. We discuss the role of gold and other commodities in a portfolio. Astoria’s picks include the VanEck Vectors Gold Miners ETF (GDX - Free Report) and a broad based commodity ETF—the GraniteShares Bloomberg Commodity Broad Strategy ETF (COMB - Free Report) .
