Here's a bunch of graphs I've generated for various stocks
http://tinyurl.com/ysojh

In a effort to have some consistency, all of my lines are generated automatically. The trend line is generated by a mathematical formula that produces a best-fit line. The high/low-CAGR lines are based on the highest/lowest CAGR that has occurred in the last 15 years. The other two lines are halfway between the trend and high/low-CAGR lines.

All CAGR lines start from the trendline point 30 years ago, not the actual stock price. This eliminates the errors that occur from a sudden rise or drop in the stock price near the starting point. This also allows for a 30 year projection from stocks with less than 30 years of data.

Stocks at 30 year lows:
abt, amgn, gsk, msft, thc

Stocks near 30 year lows:
abs, adp, alog, bmy, brk.a, cag, clx, cpb, csx, dd, efx, g, gis, hd, hnz, ko, ksu, ltd, mrk, mxim, myl, nwl, pbi, rd, sbc, sc, sgp, sle, son, sunw, tfx, tr, vvi, wag, win, wmt, wwy, wye

Stocks below the lower-half line:
adm, ba, bmet, bms, bud, ca, cah, cb, cc, cmcsa, ctb, cvs, dell, dis, dj, dov, duk, emr, f, fla, fnm, fon, fujiy, ge, gpc, gps, gt, gww, gy, has, hdi, hmc, hni, hp, hrl, hsy, ici, itw, k, kmb, ldg, luv, may, nfg, nsc, nue, orcl, pep, rad, rok, rpm, shw, so, sxi, tmo, trn, tyc, un, unp, wpo, xom

I think I've heard people talk about all of the 30 year low stocks except for THC. Any thoughts?
