In the pursuit of earning highest possible returns many investors keep chasing the asset class which has done well in the recent past. In the process, many a time they buy the asset at a price when it has reached the bubble zone. They end up losing money. Earning high returns without risk is almost an impossible task. This is because every asset class goes through different phases. This brings fluctuation in price movement of asset classes.

Low Priced Stocks vs High Priced Stocks – Which is better?

Inexperienced investors often confuse the share price of a company with its value. Let us understand this with an illustration. If an investor is given an option to buy either a stock priced at ₹ 10 or stock priced at ₹ 10,000, the possibility of such an investor buying the low-priced stock is quite high.

Conventional wisdom suggests two primary ways to analyse a stock. Fundamental analysis, which aims to ascertain the fair value of a business (stock). It takes into account quality of business of a company, demand and supply forces, pricing environment, and growth rates among other factors. Technical analysis, which assumes that the elements that impact movement of markets are easily predictable and all information about a stock is captured by the price of a stock at that moment in time.

These two styles of analyzing stocks are applied in the following way: successful investors prefer fundamental analysis to ascertain the valuation of the stock and technical analysis to time the entry into and exit from a stock.
