Legendary information and unmatched results. The Value Line Investment Survey, in print and online, serves as a comprehensive, multifaceted investment management solution used by both individual and professional investors to conduct basic research, formulate sound investment strategies, identify timely opportunities and make smart investment decisions.
“Value Line is an invaluable resource for long-term investors, providing a wealth of historical perspective (data) on 1,700 companies and a solid fundamental approach to analysis” - M.F.
Each subscription provides three sections updated weekly, more frequently online, and a range of services and features that is prismatic in scope: richly detailed financial data, objective analysis, proven price and market predictions, powerful analytic tools, insightful commentary, and more.
The nucleus of the Value Line research system is an in-depth, regularly updated database spanning approximately 1,700 of the most actively traded U.S. exchange-listed stocks, drawn from over 90 industry sectors and representing about 95% of total U.S. stock market capitalization. Further, each company in this broad universe is continuously evaluated by Value Line for expected 6-12 month price performance relative to the others, and assigned an exclusive Timeliness™ ranking.
This unique system is based on a proprietary set of algorithms centered around earnings growth and other factors, and has been repeatedly proven as a prognosticator of stock performance. In the Value Line system, Timeliness™ is usually complemented by proprietary Safety™ and Technical rankings as well.
These vast financial data and price forecasts are just part of the synergistic combination of tools and resources available within The Value Line Investment Survey’s three main sections:
Ratings and Reports: Each week, a selection of full-page stock reports with updated analysis on approximately 130 stocks in a handful of industries, presented on a rotating basis such that all of the Value Line 1,700 companies are covered each 13-week quarter. Each page pinpoints current and historic financial data, detailed financial results, 3-5 year price and earnings projections, charts, rankings, forward-looking, objective analyst commentaries, and more.
Summary & Index: An excellent, wide-angle overview of the Value Line universe covering summary information on all stocks in the Investment Survey, plus statistics and screens; the ability to drill down to a select group of stocks based on pre-set screens; and, a look ahead at Value Line’s “Hypothesized Economic Environment".
Selection & Opinion: Current economic and market statistics and forecasts, examinations of various “story stocks,” and Standard model portfolios.
Online subscriptions also include the ability to create user-defined screens and user-defined model portfolios.
