Welcome to Extracting Value

Welcome to Extracting Value!

Extracting Value is a blog, a regularly updated resource, or whatever you want to call a website with a ton of information all about value investing. Now, when you hear of value investing you probably think about (or should think about) Warren Buffet, arguably the best in the game of value investing.

He’s taken his company, Berkshire Hathaway Inc and turned it into one of the best holding companies anyone could have owned for the last 20 years. And he’s been investing using the generic term “value investing” for a lot longer than that, so there must be something to it.

This blog has been created as a way to help average investors, those investors who invest on their own through brokerage firms like sharebuilder or etrade, to determine what constitutes value investing. Learn about all the terms, the ratios, the numbers that make a stock a value or not.

Value investors buy on value and potential return. That may include stocks that have the potential for huge growth, but it may just be a stock that is way undervalued by the market because of some bad news and if you sold the company as just assets would be worth a lot more per share.

There’s a bunch of ways to find value, those are just some broad examples. Extracting Value will help its readers sift through the latest information on value investing and help make more informed investors of us all.
