De-lurking just to say this:

A Value Line timeliness 1 ranking could in and of itself introduce a bias, IOW stocks might perform just a little better simply by dint of having a T1 ranking. Unfortunately there is no real way to test this theory.

CMGI & AMZN had both been high-fliers for a couple of years before finally appearing in the VL1700.

... two opportunities missed because the stocks did not appear on the Value Line scope.

How about using the IBD EPS rankings as an earnings filter?

Nice work mrtoast!
