FREE FOR A LIMITED TIME!! And what a time it is for value investing.

Don’t believe us, according to a June 5th 2020 FT article by Merryn Somerset Webb, in “1904, value had been underperforming for 14 years and by 59%. It showed its best performance ever over the subsequent 16 years. This time around it’s 11 years of value underperformance and by 59%.”

The historic divergence between growth and value stocks presents a huge opportunity for those willing to learn.
