Value Stocks

Value stocks are stocks of undervalued companies with potential to increase in value. Benjamin Graham is often called "The Father of Value Investing" because he systematized the process of evaluating companies, with the goal of finding low-risk value stocks.

The Cabot Benjamin Graham Value Investor  recommends the best value stocks based on the principles of the father of value investing, Benjamin Graham. Benjamin Graham achieved returns of 20% per year during 1930s, ‘40s, ‘50s, and ‘60s. Benjamin Graham’s disciple, Warren Buffett, has used this approach for over 35 years and achieved similar results. And for the past 10 years, J. Royden Ward, a second-generation disciple of Benjamin Graham, has achieved returns of over 20% per year, and outperformed the market indices with a margin of out-performance of 13.7% per year.

Cabot’s publication, the Cabot Benjamin Graham Value Investor, is authored by J. Royden Ward. Roy’s goal is to provide conservative long-term investors with exceptional recommendations of undervalued common stocks. By taking advantage of the knowledge and expertise shown to us by Benjamin Graham and later by Warren Buffett, Roy can help you build a sound portfolio of quality stocks.
