Investment Theories Applied to the Market
Growth investing is a concept that has existed since trading began, but a measurable strategy started with the man considered the father of growth investing, Thomas Rowe Price, Jr. His style was investing in companies that exhibited growth signs such as strong management and cash flows, while valuing their future revenue and earnings growth higher than those of competitors. The Student Managed Investment Fund has never officially adopted either strategy, and has in fact held a multitude of both growth and value style equities. This is where my project begins. I will show through a thorough analysis of nineteen years' worth of our portfolio holdings, which style has earned us a better return on our investment. My goal is to provide non-finance trained investors a much clearer insight into both the math and logic behind investment styles, and which style to follow.
