Value Investors Club was founded in 1999 by Joel Greenblatt and John Petry to provide sophisticated individual and professional investors with a forum to exchange investment ideas free from all of the noise that populated so many investment websites at the time. The idea was simple, by being highly selective about who joins VIC, we could create a community of highly skilled investors who would contribute between 2 and 6 of their own ideas each year while giving value-added feedback on the other members' ideas. To become a member of VIC an applicant needs to submit a well researched, well articulated, attractively value investment idea. While the standards for admission are high, only about 1 in 15 applications to the site are admitted, those admitted are rewarded with real time access to a continuous source of interesting investment ideas and analysis.
Today the Value Investors Club has about 500 active members who have shared nearly 10,000 investment write-ups with other investors and provided 130,000 comments on each others ideas. We invite you to learn more by reviewing the content that is available to Guests on a delayed basis.
