Value investing is an approach that originated about 70 years ago from the godfather of the method, Benjamin Graham. Graham’s value investing influenced Warren Buffett and is still used today by many individuals and institutional investors. Value investing puts emphasis on tangible assets, earnings, dividends, financial strength and stability, as well as quality of management. In a nutshell, value investors believe that they should buy stocks with undervalued assets and eventually those assets will appreciate to their true value in the marketplace. We should note that intelligent value investing also consists of examining potential purchases according to healthy business practices and sticking to your own decisions without being influenced by the market.
