Stocks and Value investing made simple

Value Investing Monster (VIM) was founded with the purpose of bridging the information gap between learning value investing and actually putting it to use.

While there are many available information on the concepts and principles of value investing; there is a lack of resources that actually guides investors on actionable steps in screening and identifying value stocks. The VIM team aims to help you achieve just that.
