"I went to the local Library to browse through their copy of the Value Line Investment Survey."

Can you tell us (well, me really) more about Value Line Investment Survey? - stevenjklein | Date: 2/23/06 9:28 PM | Number: 1907

The Value Line Investment Survey is a service provided my Value Line in which they write a one page report on most public companies. When I first start to do research on a company, I go to a public library that subscribes to the Value Line service - most do and make a copy of the company's report.

A free Value Line Report on the DOW30 Industrial companies can obtained here: Look on the lower left portion of the web-page in the brown section where you will find DOW30. Click on that, and a page will come-up with the thirty companies in the DOW30 listed. Click on the company, then on the report and a pdf. copy of the report will be displayed which you can print a free copy.

I generally ignore the rankings on the report, because some of my best investments have had 5-5-5 rankings such as Philip Morris (MO) when I bought 1,000 shares of it for my IRA in the year 2000 at $20.0625 per share. At that price, on the year 2000 dividend MO had a 9.54% dividend yield, tax-free in my IRA. MO closed at $73.38 today, 23 February 2006.
