After a year of stock markets globally rallying, there is increasing discussion about the share market’s “true value”. Wealth Know How (www.wealth-knowhow.com.au) – Australia’s first independent financial educational video-based website designed for retail investors – will address this critical issue by featuring Roger Montgomery’s video insights on value investing.
Among the series of videos are regular guest appearances by Roger Montgomery, who is the founder, chief investment officer of Montgomery Investment Management – and one of Australia’s best-known value investors.
Wealth Know How’s Co-Founder Phaedon Vass says: “We’re excited to feature Roger’s videos on wealth-knowhow.com.au. The benefit of value investing from a consumer perspective is an important subject area for Australians and Roger has a real passion for the subject and a great knack for translating complex topics in an easy-to-understand way.
“His videos really capture the essence of value investing and explain in depth this investment philosophy. Investors are really embracing these videos that go a long way to explaining the benefits of value investing. They are a valuable addition to our continually growing library of financial education videos.”
Wealth Know How’s Co-Founder George Lucas adds: “Australia has a robust investor appetite for investing in the share market, and therefore a need to understand how to evaluate the value of companies. There are several investment philosophies for doing this of which value investing is one, and we see a critical role for the Wealth Know How website in assisting the distribution of this knowledge into the marketplace.”
Lucas concedes many investors remain passionate about other methods of evaluating shares with the hope they may lead to profits, “so it’s perfectly understandable that this approach doesn’t appeal to everyone”.
Montgomery says: “The videos highlight that for any value investor, it takes time for the businesses that they acquire to realise value, and discipline is required to maintain confidence in the investment process amid short-term volatility.
“We have always advocated a patient, long-term approach to investing in value stocks that rejects some of the conventional approaches that adopt short-term momentum measures or ‘market darlings’ to assess a stock’s performance.
“Our approach is that of investors – not speculators. We approach the stock market not as a venue for trading stocks, but as a venue to buy small pieces of businesses with the capacity to grow their worth over time. And we are increasingly finding that this approach appeals to more investors.
“It is part of our philosophy to educate investors with the aim to grow their wealth over the long-term on the merits of value investing. Investment decisions should be based on the qualities of an individual company and the price at which they are available for buying or selling compared with their ‘true value’. To this end, providing our videos on a regular basis to Wealth Know How to inform investors on value investing is an excellent tool for us to get this message across.”
This style of investing has been backed by investment gurus such as Warren Buffett and locally by Professor Ron Bird, Director of the Paul Woolley Centre, who cites studies that show value as an investment style does outperform.
