The primary tenet of value investing is to to buy low and then 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 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. Secondly, value investors rely on intrinsic value to set the buy/sell range of market price for the respective stock. In addition, value investors use financial analytics to validate operational and financial performance. Finally, patience is required. Time is on the value investor’s side.
