Price V. Value – Know The Difference

Share prices are one thing. Knowing the value of a share is completely different and far more important. Share prices are the price of admission to the party; value tells you whether or not it’s worth going inside.

Unfortunately, simply taking another investor or analyst’s valuation and running with it can be incredibly dangerous because the value is based on a set of assumptions made by him or her.

Buy, Hold or Sell

Growth shares like Afterpay can be extremely rewarding but also extremely risky investments so it’s important to go into it with your eyes wide open to the potential risks and rewards.

It’s also important to diversify. So if you’re considering buying Afterpay look at other similar, fast-growth companies before taking the plunge.
