Growing Investors Portfolio with High Return/Low Risk Value Investing Strategies
Introduction
Founder of ValueStockGuide.com, where I research and recommend great undervalued stock picks and ideas for great stocks to buy. Members get my picks that I recommend and invest in and can interact in the forum and ask me questions. We focus on the US stock market although the membership is a mix of US and overseas investors.

We also offer a free stock newsletter which is an excellent way to get my various screens that I run from time to time. If you are not afraid to dig into financials and do your own research, you can take ideas from my screens for further exploration.

Value Stock Guide has been featured in a number of major media properties including New York Times, Toledo Blade, CNBC, etc. I also write for Benzinga, Business Insider, Seeking Alpha and my articles can be seen at Nasdaq.com and Forbes.com

So we have gone back and forth over the years on whether a size premium really exists. For those new to this term, this refers to the fact that small company stocks tend to outperform the large company stocks by an amount that is not explained by the market beta.

This new study finds that the size premium indeed exists and maybe larger than previously thought
