I've been watching financial markets—in one way or another—for a long time. It's hard to believe, but I'm now almost two decades into my career. That tenure provides enough experience to know things come in cycles. Early in my career, it was the tech bubble; now it's FANG stocks—Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Google. What a lot of people lose sight of, in all the excitement of the trajectory of these tech stocks, is valuation.
At a certain point, valuation is going to matter and people are going to start paying attention to whether they're actually getting what they're paying for. But until that happens, where can value investors turn? It's certainly been a tough environment, but there are still some attractive risk-reward opportunities out there. In today's update, I share three sectors that currently pique my interest.

Investing in small-cap energy companies can be risky. Our portfolio managers discuss two potential solutions to this dilemma.
