Value Manager

A money manager who uses value investing, which is a strategy that seeks securities thought to be undervalued. A value manager may do this in a variety of ways, but two of the most popular are finding companies with low P/E ratios or low price-to-book ratios. In both cases, the stock price for a company is lower than its earnings per share or its asset value per share. These companies are thought to have high profit potential. Value managers disagree on the tools for value investing, but most use some form of fundamental analysis and look for companies with an underlying value of more than its price.
