The Value Line Investment Survey
Newport Library now subscribes to the online edition of Value Line, one of the most respected names in investment research. Since 1931, The Value Line Investment Survey has followed hundreds of stocks in its portfolio, charting their performance and investment potential.
Patrons of Newport Library now have access to the complete investment survey. Our subscription also includes overview and commentaries sections which discuss portfolio additions, highlight stock picks and contain articles on the macroeconomic outlook as well as trends within specific industries.
Stock screens can be used to pick stocks based on a variety of variables including p/e, dividend growth expectations, industry growth projections, among others. Patrons can enter the stock name or ticker symbol under “Quotes.” Clicking on “View Full Research Report” brings up a pdf of the Value Line report for that stock. You can also view the complete report survey, or survey chapters, by clicking on “Investment Survey” and scrolling down to any chapter. This includes the small and midcap survey.
If you are new to investing, click on ‘Investment Education” and work through Value Line’s four-part tutorial. The Minot Public Library in North Dakota offers a great You Tube video which covers many features of the Value Line online subscription. You can access that tutorial here.
Value Line is available both in the library or from your home computer with your Newport Library card number. Navigate to the Newport Library homepage and click on “Databases.”
The Value Line subscription is a gift of the Newport Library Foundation.
