15 Aug Picking Growth Stocks
Nick Griffin is a self-described “growth” investor. In a world where labels are often confusing and unnecessary, he explains how equities differ from other asset classes in the sense that most other asset classes “mean revert” to a certain degree.
In the equities game, stocks can rise by thousands of per cent, yet only fall 100 per cent. And while plenty more fall by 100 than rise by 1000, the stocks in the latter camp are invariably “growth” stocks.
As Nick sees it, the beauty of growth equities, and stocks in general, is that the information dissymmetry between the market participants is so much bigger than it is in other asset classes, given there are so many different variables at play.
These are what enable growth investors to discover great investments.
In this discussion, Nick explains why it is “asymmetrically” in investors’ interest to own equities, and that if they can identify those stocks that are benefitting from the structural changes that are happening all around us every day, they will “win”.
As he says in this important takeaway from market history:https://youtu.be/wrr42r5QdwA
