Woodstock, IL, September 4, 2011—Valuentum Securities, Inc., a provider of independent investment research, has begun publishing equity research reports for the largest U.S. companies. During the next 12 months, Valuentum plans to produce 16-page equity research reports for up to 1,800 companies currently monitored by its analyst team. The reports are available with a subscription to Valuentum.com, the company’s investment Web site.
“We strive to be the champion of the individual investor, and our equity research reports are targeted to meet their needs.” said Brian Nelson, president of equity research at Valuentum. “The proliferation of untrustworthy financial opinions on the web and the poor performance of once-trusted independent equity research providers have left the individual investor underserved in today’s difficult market environment. Individual investors can count on Valuentum to provide an unbiased, systematic valuation and technical process that culminates in an easily-understood equity research methodology, which ranks stocks on their relative investment merit. Our ranking system, the Valuentum Buying Index™, is fresh, unique and has already shown that it can identify outperforming stocks as revealed by the performance of our Best Ideas Newsletter.”
Valuentum began providing equity research earlier this year, including premium commentary, a Best Ideas Newsletter, and proprietary Valuentum data points. Valuentum analysts perform rigorous discounted cash-flow analysis, assess underlying risks of the investment, and evaluate technical and momentum indicators of a stock in order to pinpoint the best time to buy the most attractive equity investments.
The Valuentum Buying Index™ ranks firms from 1 to 10 (10 being best) and is based on three main pillars:
· DCF Valuation – an assessment of the intrinsic value of a company based on its future free cash flow stream and a margin of safety determined by the underlying risks of the company.
· Relative Valuation – an evaluation of the firm’s price-to-earnings ratio and price-earnings-to-growth (PEG) ratio versus industry peers to unveil whether a firm is trading at a relative discount.
· Technical and Momentum Indicators – an assessment of the stock’s moving averages, money flow index, relative strength and other indicators to pinpoint the best time to buy or sell.
Firms that are undervalued on both a DCF and relative value basis and are showing strong technical and momentum indicators score high on the Valuentum Buying Index™.
