Value investing:- 

Benjamin Graham known as the father of value investing. Although he never used value investing word. The book “The Intelligent Investor” best known for value investing. if you have taken your investing decision based on analysis of company’s balance sheet, profit and loss statement, cash flow statement and other ratios like P/E, EBITDA, Debt to equity etc. then you are value investor. Value investor because you have taken your decision based on values of that ratios. The best known weapon of value investor is intrinsic value of any given stock. They compare intrinsic value of the stock with the current price ( market price) of the stock and if the intrinsic value is more than current price (market price) then they buy that stock and hold it until and unless market realize real price (near to intrinsic value), if share reach to that value then investor sells that share and book their profit. Value investing is like “buying rupee in paise” or “discount buying.”

Share or stock which intrinsic value more than its current price (market price) then that share known as the undervalued stock. And if intrinsic value is less than current price (market price) then that type of stock is known as the overvalued stock.

Growth investing:-

In growth investing, investor give importance to fundamentals of the company like who is the person behind the company? what are the future objectives of the company and future growth potential of the company? Peter Lynch is best known for his fundamental analysis. As contrary to value investing most of the times stock buying lead to costly buying as compare to value investing or looking on ratios because of its high potential growth. What is the current price of the share? Doesn’t matter for growth investor if company has high future growth potential.

Mix of both style of investing:- 

Warren Buffett need no introduction at least in the world of share market. He is the most successful investor market ever have seen. His investing style is buy undervalued stock with high rate of growth potential, mean companies which are facing trouble now, whatever reason maybe but future of it very bright. For Warren, value and growth investing never been two different kind of investing, if you read his letters then one thing always comes into light that is "buying undervalued stocks of best companies with the expectation that company will grow in future" mean "value investing leads to growth investing", and in that way anyone can understand that “value investing and growth investing are two different sides of same coin.”

Investor never stick themselves only one type of investing style, market always give opportunities and if anyone stick with single type of investing style then it become very difficult to grab these opportunities. Try to avoid common mistakes and read good investing books so that you can make your investment decisions. Be careful and invest your money very wisely.
