Value investing is a sensible investment strategy if you are a patient investor.
Ideally, you buy shares of a stock when it is undervalued, hold patiently— sometimes for years—until it is fairly valued, and then sell, take your profits, and repeat the process. But how do you decide when a stock is undervalued?
Amateurs use simplistic measures like price/earnings ratios, but experts dig deeper, looking at cash flow, debt levels, historical valuation patterns and much more.
Cabot publishes two investment newsletters that provide expert value investing advice to both individual and professional investors.
First is the classic Cabot Benjamin Graham Value Letter. Benjamin Graham was Warren Buffett’s teacher at Columbia University in 1950, and his system of evaluating companies has been the foundation of many successful investing systems over the decade.
A key concept of the Benjamin Graham investing system is the idea of Margin of Safety, which is achieved by buying only when a stock is below its Maximum Buy Price. If you implement just this one practice in your own investing, you minimize your potential losses, while maximizing your potential profits.
Second is Cabot Small Cap Confidential, designed for the experienced investor who’s looking to develop big profits from investing in little-known small companies with great growth potential. These stocks are generally priced below $10 a share, which means upside potential is very big. The key to success is buying them at the right time, and that’s where we can help.
