James Sellon, Co-Founder of MASECO, discusses in his recent article that although there are a myriad of factors taken into account by professional and non-professional investors when narrowing the odds of making a good investment decision, more weight is generally put on recent past performance as a guide to future performance.
At MASECO we look to overweight value stocks in our worldwide equity allocations. Value investing is an investment strategy that focuses on equities that are underappreciated by investors and the market at large.
Investors in stock markets share a common ambition to generate additional returns from taking the risk of parting with their hard-earned capital to purchase company shares, usually with specific financial goals in mind that justify taking such a risk. Motivations aside, the challenge for any equity investor is to identify the most efficient way of buying shares in company stocks.
