Value Investment represents an investment philosophy which guides an investor in picking high quality stocks for investment from among a number of options available. This philosophy is in divergence with common methods of stock investing which make use of PE multiple as the basic measure of stock selection. The foundation of Value Investing lies in the fact of identifying undervalued stocks based on select criteria of fundamental analysis. The concept of Value Investing was first introduced and publicized by Ben Graham and David Dodd through their celebrated work “Security Analysis”. This paper helps bring out the core of this investment philosophy. The concentration is on understanding the definition of intrinsic value and ways and means of identifying intrinsic value for a stock through some of the established tools of fundamental analysis like dividend discounting model, DCF, Return on Investment (ROI) metric, Earnings per Share (EPS), Price/Earnings Ratio (P/E), etc.
