Thanks to Louis Corrigan for getting this conversation started with his Fool on the Hill perspective:

http://www.fool.com/news/1999/foth990804.htm

Value Line has missed out not just on the distributional advantages of the internet, but clearly has somehow avoided the explosion of online trading by do-it-yourself investors. Think about the types of single-purchase products it could develop and distribute through a discount brokerage network starving for legitimate research. Think about how it could position itself as a terrific alternative to institutional research. You've got to figure that several Schwab-like companies have considered taking a run at this slumbering giant.

I suppose that an ambitious future is sort of irrelevant to a family-controlled company that rakes in $25 million per year.
