Value Investing – A Time-tested Strategy for Equity Investing

Value investing is a proven equity investing strategy propagated by legendary investors like Warren Buffett and Benjamin Graham that focuses on investing in undervalued stocks that are priced lower than their intrinsic value.

Despite the current circumstances marked by normalised interest rates and easing inflation we believe the resurgence of value investing is likely to continue for the following reasons:

    1. Rising cost of capital: Though interest rates have normalised, they are high relative to the past decade thereby creating an opportunity for value investing. High interest rates increase the cost of capital and could negatively impact the profitability of “growth” stocks. As Value funds are focussed on buying assets that are already priced below their intrinsic value, they provide a margin of safety and hence has a buffer to absorb the relatively low pressure on multiples.
    2. Global uncertainties: Value investing can help lower downside risks when there is global economic uncertainty. It provides exposure to undervalued stocks that has lower probability of losses even if the base case assumptions while buying the stock doesn’t play out.
    3. Markets are cyclical: One thing that you should not do when building your equity portfolio is try to second-guess where equity markets will go next. Building a diversified equity portfolio is important to reduce market stress and capture opportunities across market cycles. Every style goes through its cycle, as reflected in the below chart where MSCI India Value Index has outperformed in some years and underperformed in other years.
