FromValue’s Investment Strategy

Here’s Kris’ investment thesis from his Seeking Alpha page: “That means that I look for stocks that have either growth or value or combine the two. It has been proven that the group of dividend initiators and fastest dividend growers outperforms the markets by far in the long run. So I select stocks from this group, although I also select high growth non-dividend payers that I believe will grow out to great multibaggers.”

I loved this conversation as it got to the heart of why we invest: to create life-changing wealth through high risk-adjusted compound returns.
