I am a value investor but with an emphasis on two things: Technicals and Dividends. This emphasis lets me play it safe and minimize my risk.
Assuming a value stock is actually a good deal and not just a value trap, with many there eventually should come a chart pattern that shows that others are beginning to realize what you realize: That this stock is undervalued. This also lets you time your investments for maximum returns.
Dividends, meaning safe and dependable dividends and not "sucker yields", also are a strong subplay on value. "Getting paid to wait" for a turnaround is not only an efficient return on your money while waiting for the turnaround, it also brings substantial piece of mind.
Last year (2010), I called chart breakouts on value plays XOM (Symmetrical Triangle), Alcoa (Double Bottom), Lowe's (Ascending Triangle), Goldman Sachs (Ascending Triangle) and most recently JPM Chase (ascending triangle), as well as noting the S&P Rising Three Methods in late September that portended a beautiful upswing.
I am an honors graduate from University of Florida and I've been an investor for 4 years now and loved every minute of it. The Great Recession was not the easiest time to learn the ropes, but "A calm sea never made a great sailor". I look forward to getting any and all feedback, and wish all of you the best of luck in your investing.
