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

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.

price appreciation potential from 225% to 810% (and that all of these are considered very risky investments). Not sure of their methodology in coming up with this list, but I thought I'd send along the top ten for your review. If anyone has heard of these companies, or has any thoughts on Value Line as an investmen
