Is the value model best used after a market correction?

The value model tends to work at any time. There are always stocks out of synchronisation with the market for various reasons. However, since many stocks follow the course of the general market, there will be many more value opportunities after a bear market.

More than a simple market correction will be needed to give us a lot of value opportunities. We really need a decent bear market to produce lots of good companies selling cheaply.
