Investing Principles – Value v. Growth


Today in this video I want to talk about some investing principles that kind of relate to me, and actually represent kind of a pet peeve of mine, if you will. In the investment industry there’s always a lot of discussion and even debates about which is a better way to invest – value or growth – and we often try to categorize stocks as value stocks or growth stocks. One of the things that I think are very important here and what I really want to try to accomplish in this video is that the idea that value and growth are actually joined at the hip. And in the words of the famous Frank Sinatra song years ago – you can’t have one without the other.

When it comes to investing, many investors, gurus and pundits will talk about value and growth as if they were separate considerations. With this video I am going to illustrate that value and growth are in fact joined at the hip. In other words, they are, in fact, parts of the whole.

Therefore, as the Frank Sinatra song so aptly put it:

“Love and marriage, love and marriage, go together like a horse and carriage, this I tell you brother, you can’t have one without the other.

Again, the same applies with Value versus Growth Investing – you can’t have one without the other.
