Value Investing: Why it Will Overtake Growth Stocks in 2021

“Value investing is making a comeback.” This statement has been doing the rounds of finance circles for quite some time, it started around 2019 and then grew louder in the first quarter of 2020 before COVID-19 arrived and put value stocks firmly in their ‘place’ for the rest of the year. However, the second half of 2021 might actually see solid movement in the value investing space as economies reopen, vaccination roll-outs gather pace, and the world recovers from the pandemic.

Leveling the Playing Field for Private Investments

Over the past two decades, a disturbing trend has emerged in the tech world. The fastest-growing startup companies are staying private longer than ever before.

According to research by Scott Ritter, who studies public markets as a Professor at the University of Florida, the average age of a tech company at IPO in 1999 was just four years. By 2014, the average age of tech companies going public had reached 11 years.

Companies are going public today as much larger, more mature companies. Venture capitalists and other private investors fund huge private investments into companies that could certainly go public if they wanted to. This delays the need for many companies to IPO. The result is that these private investors scoop up gains that used to go to public markets.

Investing In Gold And Silver: Where Do You Begin?

Hence, any piece of news, insightful article, or thought-leadership posts are too precious for value investors.

The Definitive List of eToro Alternatives for Canadians

When it comes to stock trading, an aspect that is severely overlooked is the social side of things. Like other professions, hobbies, and interests there is usually communities or networks where like-minded people can discuss together to learn and get a better grasp of ideas. Within stock trading and stock investing, there are a plethora of tools and services that allow you to get better data and make traders faster and cheaper, but there still aren’t enough social sites that provide value to their members. Sure there are many stock investing forums already in existence but there are limited networks designed to discuss and see what others are trading in real-time. eToro is a great site that allows it’s users to copy porfolio’’s of others, something that is beginning to be known as social trading. Unfortunately Canadians are taken to a page all to familiar when trying to go on eToro’s website.

Understand your Risk Set Point and Make Better Decisions

I was watching the movie Free Solo the other day, and it got me thinking about trading. The movie, which recently won the Academy Award for Best Documentary, follows the mountain-climber Alex Honnold as he attempts the first free solo ascent of Yosemite’s El Capitan 3000 ft rock face. Free solo means, rather unbelievably, climbing alone without the aid of ropes, fixed gear, or any other protective equipment. One slip, one wrong move and you inevitably fall to a grisly death on the valley floor. A death which has claimed many of Alex’s friends over the years.
