Value Mutual Funds

What are Value Funds


A value fund is a mutual fund that follows the concept of investing in stocks which are undervalued. The reasons for being ‘undervalued’ is due to temporary factors, thus, having a chance of providing high returns as compared to peers once valuation is at par.

Their main focus is to identify the stocks that are available at a discounted price or may be at a price that is not reflecting their true worth.

How Value Funds Work

Value funds work on the principles of value investing. In this case, the fund manager tries to pick those companies which are not evaluated on their fair value and available at discount price. All the stocks are based on value-based vs growth based. Growth stocks are those where the investor is willing to pay an additional or high premium because the company is growing at a faster rate. Value based fund grows in the longer term. Hence, A value fund manager buys undervalued stocks that have a potential for appreciation, but usually ignored by day to day investor. To pick those value stocks, the fund manager makes certain strategies to pick up those stocks which are trading below due to some inherent market inefficiency. To determine a fair value for the company stocks, fund managers evaluate future cash flows of the company which is quite challenging. But due to their vast experience and a long track record out of performance in their domain, they can provide good returns to their customers in the long run.
