Value Investing’s Triumph (Since 2003 Anyway)

By on July 22, 2010

John Reese, founder and CEO of Validea, has written a piece for Forbes highlighting the 7-year results of several guru-inspired portfolios constructed back in 2003. The winner so far is:

More than three decades after his death, Ben Graham is still beating the market.

At least, Graham’s strategy is still handily beating the market, according to’s guru-inspired portfolios, the original 10 of which recently hit the 7-year mark in terms of performance tracking. And the results show that Graham, known as “The Father of Value Investing,” is still king.

From its July 15, 2003 inception through July 15 of this year, Validea’s 10-stock Graham-inspired portfolio returned a total of 147.6%. That’s an annualized return of 13.8% per year—during a period in which the S&P 500 index returned a total of just 9.6% (1.3% per year).

Running second is the Motley Fool’s portfolio with an excellent 7-year return of 128.3%, with third place held by Ken Fisher, returning 119.2% over the same period.

Several stocks that currently meet the criteria of Validea’s Graham-inspired portfolio include Bebe Stores (BEBE), Sanofi-Aventis (SNY), Ensco (ESV) and Archer-Daniels Midland (ADM).
