For a while now, I have been trying to apply sound value investing approaches by buying quality companies when they fall below intrinsic value with a good margin of safety. The truth is so far I have only managed to acquire one stock with this approach. It is tough… so tough that many value investors are simply waiting for a crash. So far that is not playing too well.
Now had I simply just opened initially a small (2-5%) position in each of the stocks I monitor ignoring the ticker price and simply average down when they went down by a margin, I would have been making a decent return instead of idling on cash. This lead me to question whether as a young investor I am over-thinking this process and getting too rigorous about the process, to a point that the research process is becoming injurious to my investing opportunities.
I am curious whether you folks encounter the same challenge and how you proceed to rationalize your next steps.
