Given the uncertainty over earnings growth in 2014/15, you understandably don’t want to pay any more than you need to for top stocks. But there are occasions when you shouldn’t be deterred from paying close to or indeed above intrinsic value (IV) for quality companies on a strong growth trajectory.
As a value investor, sometimes you’re better off buying a quality business with plenty of growth in front of it at a (slight) premium to its intrinsic value than trying to save money on a bad stock that’s languishing.
