Value Investing Stock Market Advice
Value investing works, but it is not always simple to practice. Whether you are a do-it-yourself value investor, or someone who wants stock advice from an expert with outstanding track record, you will find all you need at Value Stock Guide.
Since 2011, I have helped value investors like you invest in the stock market with discipline and confidence and unparalleled stock market investment advice based on value investing principles. We have out-performed S&P 500, Russell 2000 and BRKA since the inception of the service, during a time when value investing as a strategy has lagged the broad stock market.
We did this with superior value stock selection, optimal portfolio construction, and uncompromising attention to managing risk. Starting today, you can choose to adopt this investment rigor and accrue its immense benefits.
The stock market game is rigged in favor of skill and experience. The Random Walk is a myth. Wealth migrates from the impatient to the patient. Successful value investing is much more than just buying a group of value stocks. Best investors succeed because they construct their portfolios intelligently, allocate their capital optimally, and manage their risk uncompromisingly. This is my wish for you.

Ever wondered why the most successful investors tend to be value investors?
Turns out, value investing has some secret advantages over all other styles of investing. This allows value investors to far outperform the rest of the market over the long term.
Consider the following chart:
The chart above illustrates some of the indisputable facts from 100s of years of stock market history
- Value beats growth. There exists a Value Premium, and,
- Small beats large.There exists a Size Premium.
I talk about the value premium and the size premium in more detail elsewhere on the website. I also present more historical data to support the superiority of the small cap value asset class for long term wealth building.
But here is something you should remember.
Picking the Correct Asset Class is Important, but not Enough
As someone who has been investing and watching other investors in the stock market for over 2 decades, I have to say...
Most investors do not know how important capital allocation, position sizing and risk management is to their portfolios.
And even if they did know, there is not much information available on how to structure your portfolio properly.
We hear that Warren Buffett describes his job as "capital allocator", but no one asks what is an optimal capital allocation, or how Mr. Buffett does it (hint: look up Kelly Criterion).
You can pick the right asset class, but you may still not do well. That is because you buy your stocks like you buy your veggies in the grocery store: a little bit of this and a little bit of that.
The correct way to structure your portfolio is to ask the question: What is your goal? Do you want to maximize your rewards, or do you want to minimize your risk? Or somewhere in between.
There are processes you can follow, if you know what you want to do.
