“Regardless of whether you are a professional investor or student, you will benefit greatly from the information you find in Value Line.” - B.T.
Each month, our senior analysts choose the one stock above all others that appears to have the best upside and risk/reward ratio, and recommends its purchase to you, a Select subscriber.
The selection process begins by using the highly regarded Value Line® Ranking System to screen the over 3,500 stocks in both The Value Line Investment Survey® and our Small & Mid-Cap Survey. We then sit down and review the top-ranked stocks in the Value Line universe. (Occasionally, an especially promising lower-ranked stock may be included in our review.) We conduct qualitative research by digging into the operations and prospects of the most promising companies, often speaking with CEOs and CFOs. We assess the economic and industry outlook, as well as the competition. Finally, we project future earnings-per-share, to derive the stock's target price. And if the upside and risk/reward potential is, in our estimation, truly exceptional, we recommend the stock to you, our subscribers.
Once a month, via Priority Mail, you'll receive a 15- to 20-page detailed report clearly explaining why we are recommending this single stock above all others.
The report will begin by summarizing what the company does, what the current opportunity is, and an estimate of how much, you, as an investor, stand to make. We then examine in detail the factors most pertinent to success - the economic and industry backdrop, how the company differentiates itself from the competition, its strategy for success, and how management intends to overcome the inevitable risks.
We will provide all pertinent historical background and financial information about the company, and include a comprehensive look at the company's finances, including a review of historical data and projected sales and earnings.
Once a stock is recommended for purchase, we keep investors abreast of developments through Supplementary reports that include an updated Buy, Hold, or Sell recommendation.
