This is yet another example of why value investing is so beneficial to investors. In general, it is a win after win set of results. There are no dramatic successes or stories of super returns on an investment; to earn that type of a return, an investor must resort to speculation. Value investing is about buying high quality stocks at low prices and simply waiting for the market price to recover to a reasonable pre-determined price. It isn’t about making dramatic or huge returns on one’s investment; but, consistency and adherence to the four core principles earns good returns year after year. Act on Knowledge.
