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.
