Value Investing

Value Investing

Value investing is defined as a systematic process of buying high quality stock at an undervalued market price quantified by intrinsic value and justified via financial analysis; then selling the stock in a timely manner upon market price recovery.

The primary tenet of value investing is to to buy low and sell high. If done properly, average annual returns on an investment fund will exceed 30%. Value investing requires the investor spend some time creating a decision matrix for each pool of similar companies. This model is then implemented and updated on an annual basis. Value investing is in effect the exact opposite of day trading. Value investing takes advantage of time and this reduces the overall stress for a fund manager. 

Value InvestingValue investing relies on four principles to ensure success.

The first is risk reduction by only working with high quality stocks; in general, work with the top 2,000 companies worldwide. Absolutely avoid penny and small cap financial instruments. Top companies reduce risk significantly due to their stability of earnings. Stability of earnings is the most important value derivative in business.

Secondly, value investors rely on intrinsic value to set the buy/sell range of market price for the respective stock. Intrinsic value is the core worth of a company. There are several different intrinsic valuation formulas and their application is a function of the company’s business model. There is no single universal intrinsic valuation formula.

In addition, value investors use financial analytics to validate operational and financial performance. This analysis allows the value investor to determine the most likely market price recovery point and its associated time frame to recover.

Finally, patience is required. Time is on the value investor’s side. Look at these results.

My Personal Guarantee:
This program isn’t for everyone. If you find this program too intense or not what you expected, TELL ME. Just be honest with me and I’ll refund your membership fee. This promise is good for the first year of the program. I’ve had folks tell me it is too much time committment or ‘the financial analysis is more than I can grasp’. It’s OK, I understand, everyone starts out with good intentions and then the realization sets in that security analysis is really detailed or takes more work than anticipated. I’m fortunate, I have a formal education in accounting; and also, I enjoy this deep analysis of companies and pools of investments. Therefore, I don’t want you to walk away thinking you got slighted by having to pay a membership fee for a program that just wasn’t right for you. Send me an email; I’ll refund your membership fee within about two days (I’m not at my desk 24/7). 

When you join the Value Investing Club, you receive two separate programs. The first, the one most subscribers are interested in, is access to the activity and models of the Value Investment Fund. Each week, you get regular e-mails which provide recent activity and directives related to buys and sells of the pools’ potential opportunities. In addition, sometimes alerts are sent when opportunities exist with buys and sells of certain securities. In effect, you can mimic the performance of this site’s Value Investment Fund. The particular program venue provides the following benefits:

  • Access to at least six pools of industries and their corresponding potential corporate information (currently 46 members in the aggregate);
  • Each pool has its own decision matrix for buy and sell points;
