Not sure if I am nuts, but I receive multiple newsletters from MF. The Stock Advisor, Hidden Gems, Champion Funds and Income Investor. According to Jeremy Siegel whose book I got through the Income Investor subscription, most investors fall into the "next big thing" syndrome or the "growth trap" as he calls it, thinking that better returns are a function of faster growth rates. His entire book and the general thesis of the Income Investor is based on this belief that overall returns are better with companies whose expectation of returns are low, as a their valuations. So if we buy into this philosophy, are we not simply falling into the growth trap mentality when we follow the advise of the Stock Advisor and Hidden Gems stocking picking approach?

Confused. thanks.
