The strong form of the efficient market hypothesis (EMH) puts forward that it is impossible to achieve better than market results. Yet there are very famous investors, particularly a famous value based investor named Warren Buffett that have achieved better than market returns. The primary objective of this study is to investigate the role of value based investment in generating better than market or superior investment returns. The study was conducted both as a literature study and an empirical study. The objectives of the literature study were threefold. Firstly, to discover value based investment as part of a discussion on investment strategies. Secondly, to investigate the possibility of achieving better than market returns. Lastly, to investigate the role of value based investing in achieving better than market returns. Through the literature study, value based investment parameters were also identified for empirical testing. It was found in the literature that value based investing has a role to play in achieving superior returns. By way of the application of correlation-based research, as well as regression analysis it was found that there is significant statistical evidence to underscore that value based investment parameters can lead to superior returns.
