Subject: BI Dow30 Picks for VL Series Update Jul 4 2014 Date: 6/30/2014 7:04 PM

This update is based on the latest VL results as of Monday’s data release. At this time there is not a single stock that is below its Downside price target.
As a result, not a single company could meet the necessary BI Long Buy conditions.

Market Valuation (Dow 30): 
Although the market advanced again a bit in June, the estimated market valuation remained the same as last month.
The Dow30 currently stands at about 16% overvalued using the BI method.
Downside: -29%
Upside:   +2%

Long Buy Rules: 
I am using the following TTD rules for Long position considerations:
1. Year-over-Year EPS growth must > 10%, which are 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)
5. ROE and BV current figures must be updated by VL to be considered.

There is a separate tracking post that I post to tack the annual hold selection for the remainder of the year. 
I also added two new columns to this worksheet. They are: 1. An indication if VL has updated the current year’s 
BV and ROE. If yes, then the column will indicate TRUE, if not then FALSE. 2. An average of the previous 4 VL 
update’s Downside Price, showing the price’s discount to this value. This is a simple average of the past
four updates in the Downside price. This new metric was never mentioned in the TTD book, but it might be of  
use to consider in case baseline valuations swing in one period during the evaluation time frame.  

Evaluation time frame: 
Current = 2014
Benchmark = 2004 thru 2013

Disclosures and Useful Terms
VL Date is the date of the last summary report update from Valueline as indicated in the post’s subject line.
All data sources from Valueline Dow30 reports made publically available on the VL website. http://www.valueline.com/Dow30/index.aspx

Current Price is the closing price of the stock as reported by VL, which is usually a few days behind the date 
of the time period mentioned in the posting subject line.

ROE/BV Updated is an indication if the stock’s BV and ROE have been updated through the end of the Benchmark 
evaluation time frame.

10Yr Down is the 10 year downside price. The company must have at least 7 years of non-negative ROE data to qualify.

10Yr Down4Qs is the 10 year downside price averaged over the previous 4 quarter’s valuation price.

10Yr Up is the 10 year upside price. The company must have at least 7 years of non-negative ROE data to qualify.

Both upside and downside are calculated using method outlined in TTD book.
Also a discussion of calculating the upside and downside can be found here:
http://boards.fool.com/Message.asp?mid=20916205&sort=who......

%<10Y Downside is the current price divided by the 10 Yr downside expressed as a percentage.

EPS Future Delta is the projected growth in EPS for the next 4 quarters versus the last four reported quarters.
I use the latest EPS data from the VL spreadsheet which are updated as soon as new earnings are reported.

Div Yield is the current % dividend payout ratio per share.

3-5 Y Low/Hi Price Est. is the downside/upside price estimate which is calculated using the projections of Book Value 
and ROE as discussed in TTD.

Min VL Price Appreciation is the expected change in price from current price to low end VL projected 3-5 year
appreciation price.

ROE >2STD is part of a margin of safety consideration, which is briefly discussed in TTD on pg 70-71. 

I compare the current year's ROE versus the last 10 years of ROE data. If the current ROE is greater than average (10 Yr
ROE) + (2 * stdev(10 Yr ROE)), than this column is TRUE, else it is FALSE. This tells me that the stock's ROE is much
higher than its historic average and should therefore be avoided.
