The Russell 1000 Growth Index is down from its highs for the year, and Citi believes that this has created an opportunity to “buy growth at a pullback”. The growth index has risen 25% on a total-return basis in 2023 and reached a peak of 34% on 19th July. According to Scott Chronert, since then the index has fallen more than 6% with a significant dispersion of single stocks. Nearly two-thirds (67%) of the stocks included in the index are down 10% or more since their 2023 highs. One-third of them is more than 20% lower. Chronert’s note of Friday said that the index prices did not reflect the pressure on individual stocks. “We think that there is a good medium-term set up for Growth, as we have a reasonable margin of safety in terms of fundamentals.” Citi looked for growth names that could be considered on a pullback. The stocks listed below were rated as buys by the firm. Russell assigns at least 75% market cap to growth style. After March 31, the market cap is down 10% or more compared to its year-to date highs.

Nvidia’s stock, which has risen more than 188% in the past year, is now 18% below its peak reached at the end of August. Nvidia may be overbought by some due to its massive year-to date rally, but the average price target indicates that shares could rise an additional 47.7% since Friday’s closing. Nearly 95% analysts rate the stock as a buy. KLA (based in the Netherlands) has fallen 14% since its peak of 2023. The stock has still risen more than 20% for the year.
