Abstract: Using a simulation study methodology it is found that the rewards to value investing become both larger and more reliable as the investor’s holding period lengthens. Value investors appear to be rewarded for time. Evidence is also found of a right skewness in the distributions of returns to value portfolios that becomes more pronounced over longer horizons. This implies that that the rewards to value investing are not distributed evenly across stocks and time. Rather it is a minority of shares over particular periods that constitute the majority of the value effect.
