TYPES OF INVESTORS:
Investors that buy into companies that are growing quicker than the stock market is growing, AKA, thriving.
Value Investors buy into companies when the stock price of said company is lower than what they think the value of that company is (Often called Margin Of Safety). Value can often be calculated using RSI or P/E Ratio, and there are two different types of P/E Ratios: trailing and forward P/E Ratio.
- Stock Price/PAST Earnings Per Share
- Stock Price/EXPECTED Earnings Per Share

Dollar-Cost Averaging Investor
Investors who divide their investments into equal amounts over the course of time, AKA, buying the same stock at the same price multiple times and ONLY AT THAT PRICE.

Investors often take these four strategies and try to find stocks with good statistics and fundamentals that they think may grow in the future.
