Investopedia explains 'Undervalued'


Buying stocks when they are undervalued is a key component of mogul Warren Buffett's value investing strategy. Value investing is not foolproof, however. There is no guarantee as to when or whether a stock that appears undervalued will appreciate. There is also no single correct way to determine a stock's intrinsic value - it is basically an educated guessing game.
