Value investing is an investment strategy that consists of selecting stocks which seem to be trading for less than their intrinsic or book value. In the ever-evolving and often strange world of investing, investors who seek value plays can follow the Roundhill Acquirers Deep Value ETF, which offers retail and institutional investors exposure to largely undervalued stocks, and seeks investment results that closely track the performance of the Acquirers Deep Value Index. The fund has $42 million in assets under management and an expense ratio of 0.80%. The Roundhill Acquirers Deep Value ETF was launched on September 23, 2014. 

David Einhorn, the portfolio manager of Greenlight Capital, said in the beginning of October 2022 that value investing might never be mainstream again. He noted that there are very few market participants who are actually well versed in value investing, and most investors have turned to passive and quantitative investing. He said that “nobody knows what anything is worth” and explaining his stance further, Einhorn told Bloomberg

“So there’s an enormous number of companies that are dramatically mis-valued in ways that we haven’t seen before.”

On the other hand, Aaron Dunn and Brad Galko, Co-Heads of the Value team at Eaton Vance, part of Morgan Stanley Investment Management, stated on June 17 that financial services, healthcare, and industrials may provide lucrative investment opportunities in the current market backdrop. They noted that companies manufacturing medical technology and pharmaceuticals are also attractive value-investing plays. 

Some of the best value stocks include JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM), Walgreens Boots Alliance, Inc. (NASDAQ:WBA), and QUALCOMM Incorporated (NASDAQ:QCOM).
