Value Line was one of several good references I used when I was trading individual stocks, but that was almost 10 years ago (all mutual funds now) and I don't know how it compares to today's resources. Way more online now I'm sure. But I never would have subscribed, I just used the local library copy whenever I wanted to research a stock(s).

I used Value Line also over 20 years ago. I also used a slide ruler 35 years ago. I'm getting old!
AA = 60/40. AWR = 4.2%. TER = 0.4%. Port Yield = 2.0%. Term = 38 yr. FI Duration = 4.6 yr.

Value Line can be very helpful. I had a sub for years, and now I use it free on my library card.

I can't see that is would be useful for an asset allocating indexer, unless he also market timed.

I used to go to the library to use VL materials. Now I'm lazy and just use Standard & Poors reports online through Fidelity. I do look at the Value Line Dow 30 free reports that are online. I own a few of those stocks and find the reports helpful.
