Value Line Investment Survey

The Value Line Investment Survey, recently rated by Hulbert number 1 among 165 research newsletters for risk adjusted gains during the last 20 years, is one of the most widely used independent investment information services in the world. Its up-to-date issues are a comprehensive reference that has useful information for virtually every investor. In breadth of coverage it is encyclopedic, covering some 1,700 equity issues. Every week, about 135 stocks in seven or eight industries are covered.

Value Line Investment Survey ñ Small and Mid-Cap Edition

The Value Line Investment Survey ñ Small and Mid-Cap Edition complements The Value Line Investment Survey and covers approximately 1,800 additional, mostly small-capitalization, issues. The Expanded Edition features consensus earning estimates for many companies, a business description of each company, including recent corporate developments, and Value Line's Performance Ranks, designed to predict relative price performance over the next six to 12 months. The publication does not include analysts' commentaries.

In addition to the 3,500 companies covered between the two publications discussed above, Value Line also maintains a database on approximately an additional 4,000 companies. The Value Line Investment Survey Plus includes the ability to screen and generate profile reports on this expanded universe, bringing the total equity coverage to approximately 7,000+ companies!

Value Line Mutual Fund Advisor Plus

The Value Line Mutual Fund Advisor Plus gives access to data and covers over than 20,000 load, no-load, and low-load funds and powerful fund screening tools with hundreds of fields available that allow you to filter through the data using your own criteria to find funds that meet your investment objectives.

Value Line ETF Survey

This service has an ETF Expected Relative Return Rating System that builds on Value Line's experience with its Timeliness Ranking System. Starting with the list of stocks in each ETF, the raw score forecast for each stock's expected relative performance is weighted by that stock's market capitalization and then summed to arrive at a capitalization weighted average forecast for the ETF as a whole. These forecasts are scaled to numbers ranging from a possible +50 (Highest Expected Relative Return) to -50 (Lowest). A rating of 0 (zero) corresponds to an expected return comparable to the markets.
