Invest in value stocks
Value companies have been known to outperform growth companies in both the US and global markets ever since index tracking became available. Experts call it the “value effect.”
A portfolio that leans toward these value stock companies — instead of growth companies — historically has provided higher returns on investment. Value companies have low stock prices relative to their underlying value according to earnings, sales, and book value.
Also, most value companies offer an annual dividend to their investors, which adds to your total return.
