No. of Recommendations: 6
The monthly tracking results will be posted after the market closes later tonight or tomorrow morning. 

Based on the latest VL results as of Monday’s data release, no companies would qualify as a Long candidate.

Although several stocks are significantly overvalued, according to the BI valuation methods, 
none would qualify as a short candidate either.

Market Valuation: we continue to move into further into market overvaluation.
Downside: -26%
Upside:   +9%


I am using the following TTD rules for Long position considerations:
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)

VL Date is the date of the last summary report update from Valueline. All data sources from Valueline Dow30 reports as made publically available on their website.

Current Price is the closing price of the stock as of the time mentioned in the posting description.

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

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.
