But if you are actively searching for a way to create financial freedom for yourself and your family, we believe that our guide will help you find the success that you are looking for.
To be the Best, You Must Learn from the Best
There is a reason why legendary investors like Warren Buffett, Peter Lynch, Joel Greenblatt, consistently beat the market throughout their careers.
No, it is not because they have more IQ points than us.
Nor is it about their exclusive connections, or the mountains of money available at their disposal.
It is because they simplify everything and focus on a few key principles that help guide every investment decision they make.
To learn more about these principles, check out our “Growth Investing: Beginners Guide”
Like them, we apply these principles to our own investment strategy– but with a twist.
We Love Growth Stocks
When someone typically thinks of Warren Buffett, they usually think of value investing. But did you know that Warren is very much a growth investor himself?
Generally, growth investing and value investing are considered two different investment strategies. However, much to the dismay of some institutional investors, these two strategies have a lot more in common than you might think. This is because it is most worthwhile to buy a stock when it is undervalued, while still capitalizing on the businesses that are likely to generate the best returns on our investment.
Buffett describes this as, “buying a wonderful business at a fair price, rather than buying a fair business at a wonderful price.”
Although, to be fair, sometimes there are opportunities where you get the best of both worlds.
Why Growth Stocks?
Growth stocks are particularly valuable to us as investors because they often generate the best returns for our portfolio. This is because these businesses are in the high growth phase of their life cycle, and are striving to increase their presence within their respective markets as quickly as possible.
They do so by reinvesting all of their profits back into the business, which ultimately leads to a greater ROI because they compound cash more effectively compared to dividend-paying stocks or maturing businesses.
Unlike growth stocks, dividend stocks are extremely inefficient in the long run for three reasons:
- They are double taxed (once as a business income tax and once as a capital gains tax).
- The company couldn’t reinvest the cash usefully.
- As an investor, you are now forced to reinvest the cash yourself.
While it definitely feels nice to have the extra money in your pocket from a dividend, we believe that it would be better spent on growing the business since it is likely that the CEO reinvests the cash more effectively than we ever could.
When you find a wonderful business– paired with an exceptional management team– these are the results you are likely to expect.
To emphasize this point, here is an example from Gautam Baid’s book, The Joys of Compounding (2020):
Edge Investments started as the brainchild of Kevan Matheson, Founder & CEO. Prior to starting Edge, Kevan was an Institutional Analyst at RBC Global Asset Management, one of North America’s largest fund managers, with assets under management in excess of $400 billion.
After spending the majority of his career focused on large market capitalization public companies, Kevan became attracted to the risk/reward proposition of growth stocks and cryptocurrency.
In 2017 Kevan published a book on investing in cryptocurrency, where he speculated on the coming growth in NFT’s and the underlying tokens that power their ecosystems. Though his attitude towards these speculative assets soured during the mania of 2021, he continued to search for up and coming industries such as psychedelic medicine, plant-based proteins and other disruptive technologies.
Known in the growth stock community as Small Cap Kev, his passion is finding stocks in disruptive industries and getting early exposure before the slower moving institutions he used to work for.
