Finding and Pursuing Your Ideal Investment Strategy

Date: Friday, September 21, 2018 2:32 PM EDT

Whether you’re a novice or seasoned investor, the reality is that no one’s approach to the practice is exactly the same. If it were, there would be no competition, nothing to learn and the market as a whole would be a lot more boring. Rather, it is a personal pursuit that takes into account myriad factors from your risk tolerance level to your annual income and long-term retirement goals. Before you partner with a financial advisor and take those first steps toward pursuing investing as a personal finance journey, it’s helpful to analyze which approach to investing is right for you.

The good news is there are plenty of routes to take and no method has emerged as being exactly right, all of the time. So, take the time to do a little industry research along with some self-analysis to find the right fit for you. Here are a few ideas to get started.

1. Value Investing

This investment strategy is most closely associated with billionaire Warren Buffett, who has been the face and name behind it for decades. In short, value investing is the process of simply investing in stocks that are underpriced for their value. In many instances, a high-performing company with a solid history of return might be going for less per share than it should be, and in these cases, Buffet’s school of thought is that those are the ones you should be taking a closer look at.

While this can be an ideal way to find companies that yield high returns for little up-front money, the kicker is that finding these diamonds in the rough can take a ton of work and research. You’ll need to dig into financial records and company histories to determine the ones that are performing well enough to take a gamble on. Moreover, even once you’ve found these elusive companies, you still have to wait for the stock prices to rise to see a significant return. If you are a young investor with years to spare, this is a pursuit worth looking into, especially if you don’t mind the backend investigation that is required.
