Better Bets work in a probabilistic manner. Picking a stock with lower market valuation but better financial performance increases the odds of realizing better market returns, but does not guarantee it. For realization of better returns, it is imperative that the stock's growth and margin performance continues to exceed that of the other so that the market gets enough time to recognize this consistent outperformance.
