Just got back from the library and a browse of Value Line.

Being interested in TMF orphans, either from sells or abandoned or deemphasized portfolios, I decided to compare CSL and CSCO in terms of appreciation potential over Value Line's time horizon (2003-2005). The upshot: the sexy techy has roughly the same potential as the Boring manufacturer.

Yeah, I know. CSCO has higher GROWTH, and will presumably appreciate faster as long as the PEG and P/E remain roughly constant. But that's a bigger assumption with CSCO than with CSL.

Long CSCO. No position CSL, but used to own.

OT: Another interesting thought from looking at Value Line. Why not construct a VLF4 (Value Line Foolish 4), where you take the 4 Dow stocks with the highest appreciation potential?
