Where does a value investor find bargains in a market in which all 10 sectors of the S&P 500 posted gains in the first half of the year?

How are premium members of GuruFocus supposed to evaluate the list of Gurus when more often than not there is no historical performance records. Most of the time the "profile/performance" tab does not have anything on performance. Why not? Maybe it should just be called the "profile" tab. This is very frustrating.
