Valuation Driven™ investing begins and ends with calculating the intrinsic value of every stock in a benchmark against which a portfolio is constructed, and comparing those values against traded prices.

All of Applied Finance’s portfolios are Valuation Driven™, which differs significantly from traditional “value” approaches that rely on noisy accounting data and cheapness multiples.

Learn why the Valuation 50 and Valuation Dividend strategies have outperformed over the past decade and why these strategies perform their best after down markets.
