Camarda Wealth’s investment philosophy is based on buying quality investments for less than their true value. In other words, we look for value where stocks and bonds might be mispriced in the market.
By contrast, growth investing is when investors jump on a hot investment and hope it keeps riding high, but as time has proven over and over, when at the top, there is a lot of room to fall. Instead, value investing looks for deals, to buy stocks cheap and sell higher as the market reflects fair value. This ‘don’t follow the herd’ ‘Warren Buffett” mentality can be less risky and pay off in the long run.
At Camarda Wealth, we do remain disciplined. We do not buy investment vehicles just because they are cheap. As Warren Buffet once eloquently said, “It’s far better to buy a wonderful company at a fair price, than a fair company at a wonderful price.”
Short-term market performance can make investors feel like they are on a roller coaster ride. There are times when they can feel dizzy from fluctuations in the markets and, with inferior or unskilled advisors, often making poor decisions when emotions outweigh rational thinking.
At Camarda Wealth we try to be the voice of reason for our clients so they make the right decision based on their investment horizon and risk tolerance. Too often investors chase performance and buy “hot” investments at inflated prices, only to be disappointed when prices drop and they may lose a large percentage of their capital. The same is true when investors should be investing when the market is low, but they do not have the confidence to do so and they miss the upswing in the market.
Our philosophy is to let the markets work for our clients and exploit long term trends.
