Subject:  BI - Dow30 - April 2, 2012 Picks Date:  4/3/2012  8:22 AM

Based on the latest results, VL Apr 6 2012 update, there are three  stocks in the DOW30 that meet the criteria for a Long-term hold according 
to the TTD methods. The companies meeting the TTD criteria for Long positions are CSCO, AA, and HPQ. Using the same valuation
technique in reverse, shows that BA and IBM are the most overvalued DOW stock and might be considered for a Short position. Also, the overall current
downside risk in the market seems to be about -15%,while the upside is +26%. This implies we have moved more toward the middle as of late, 
but remain in a slightly oversold position. 

I am using the following TTD rules:
1. Year-over-Year EPS growth must > 10%, which is the next 4Q / current quarter + previous 3 quarters earnings results
2. VL 3-5 Year price appreciation < average price appreciation of the market
3. When calculating ROE and BV figures, ignore years when are negative, but must have at least 7+ years of data to be included in final consideration
4. Avoid erratic ROE ratios, that is where they are > 2std deviations = Curr ROE > (10 Year Avg + 2 * Std Dev)
