Invest like Buffet!

Investors are often looking for ways to beat the market. Equity is a proven asset class to generate long term wealth. However, portfolio returns are dependent on the stock picker’s ability to maximize gains and minimize losses. If you’re one of those investors, you should consider following a proven strategy that has been implemented by the investment greats: Value Investing. Value investors know how to beat the average annualized returns of the S&P 500 and many have successful track records spanning several decades to prove it.

Price is what you pay, value is what you get. Value Investing is basically like shopping for a bargain at a garage sale. The idea is to look for something that may have on it some dust, some rust, or even may have been badly beaten up. But underneath the apparent defects is something you think is a gem that will be worth a lot more than the price tag. Put simply, Value Investing, for the most part, ignores current trends in favour of company fundamentals. The basic approach of Value Investing is evaluating fundamentals against the market price to determine the intrinsic value for a long-term buy-and-hold strategy.
