HOW TO USE"Buy Low, Sell High" ... The basic of Value Investing is buying great companies at a discounted price. Buy ONLY when UPside is 10%-15% and moreover ideally above 15%.
Last traded market price for the company or index.
BUY BELOW PRICE
A level at which capital appreciation potential is already attractive relative to the fair value estimate. Any price below the Buy Below price is considered an attractive level to buy the stock.
Fair Value is a company's estimated worth or fair market value as computed by various ways specific to its industry (i.e DCF, NAV, P/BV, P/E) provided by COL.
The PE ratio is the most commonly used valuations measure. It shows how much is paid for each unit of earnings. The PE of a stock describes the price of a share relative to the earnings of the underlying asset. The lower the PE, the less you have to pay for the stock, relative to what it earns. PE is also considered a relative valuation measure.
A technical momentum indicator that compares the magnitude of recent gains to recent losses in an attempt to determine overbought and oversold conditions of an asset
An asset is deemed to be overbought once the RSI approaches the 70 level, meaning that it may be getting overvalued and is a good candidate for a pullback. Likewise, if the RSI approaches 30, it is an indication that the asset may be getting oversold and therefore likely to become undervalued.
The difference between Last price and Fair Value in percentage (%). Most investors prefer to buy stocks with at least 10% Upside and ideally 15% and up.

HOW TO MAXIMIZE
1. Do NOT just buy stocks with the highest UPSIDE unless you are a hardcore Long Term investor, a "Contrarian" investor and has the patience of Warren Buffett and Philip A. Fisher who don't sell for decades. Fisher's longest was 49 years!
2. Buy when: it's near the support as much as possible (check your broker for their Technical Analysis guide); RSI is oversold; MACD is bullish (or starting to be bullish); price closes above Moving Average; PSEi is on up trend.
