Many of you savvy investors out there are familiar with Value Line, but how many of you are aware how it began? Did you know that the real bottom dropped out of the stock market, not in the intial crash of 1929, but in 1932, when stocks were worth only 10% of their pre-crash value? A young employee of Moody's at the time, was horrifed that his mother's entire nest egg was wipedout, and soon he was out of a job. Noting that there was no system for rating stocks, he decided to work on his theory of value line rating. This young man, Arnold Bernhard, decided to "find and disclose a standard of normal value which would so enlighten the investing public that the extremes of 1929 and 1932 could never again be repeated." Thus, Value Line was born. Value Line is available through our database page, and has proved immensely popular with our patrons. It is easy to use and includes all the great features, and more, that has made Value Line the gold standard for today's investors.
