Investing Smarter with Value Line

Founder of value line Arnold Bernhard quoteA vision of independence since 1931

Value Line was founded in 1931 by Mr. Arnold Bernhard following the stock market crash of 1929 and subsequent bear market that wiped out what little savings his mother had. After spending several years on Wall Street working for Moody’s Investors Service, Bernhard determined that the then-current practice of analyzing stocks was woefully flawed and inadequate. As such, he set out to develop a set of objective measures that would signal when a stock was over or undervalued — measures that would not yield to emotions. What soon followed would revolutionize the practice of securities analysis and send Value Line on its path to becoming one of the world’s leading independent investment research organizations.
