We provide an independent, insightful systematic investment evaluation process that combines a rigorous discounted cash-flow and relative-value methodology with a timeliness overlay via technical and momentum indicators. Use our discounted cash-flow process by itself or blend it with a variety of other metrics we generate. Our coverage universe spans over 1,000 equities, and we make fully-populated valuation models available as part of your membership. Access our valuation models, view our Best Ideas Newsletter portfolio and Dividend Growth Newsletter portfolio, and add our Valuentum Buying Index or Valuentum Dividend Cushion ratings to your process today!
Our Product Offering for Institutions
We offer institutional investors fully-populated discounted cash-flow models that contain at least three years of historical financial detail and five years of future explicit forecasts. Institutional and financial-adviser subscribers can access models on companies spanning our entire stock coverage universe to evaluate future estimates, or alter key inputs to generate a customized fair value estimate. Our model is academically sound and professionally-tested and includes a three stage process, with fading returns on new invested capital to a company's cost of capital over time.
We offer ongoing access to our Best Ideas Newsletter portfolio and Dividend Growth Newsletter portfolio. On the basis of our processes, both portfolios represent the cream of the crop in terms of investment ideas for opportunistic and dividend growth investors, respectively. The Best Ideas Newsletter portfolio and Dividend Growth Newsletter portfolio are not real money portfolios. Results are hypothetical and do not represent actual trading.
Best Ideas Newsletter
Each monthly issue of our Best Ideas Newsletter reveals our best ideas for capital appreciation constructed in a portfolio. We write commentary associated with the companies in the portfolio or stocks in the news and notify you immediately via email if our thoughts or opinions have changed on any company or position in the portfolio. Consistent with our investment methodology, the Valuentum Buying Index, our best ideas may span investing disciplines, market capitalizations and asset classes. Past results are not a guarantee of future performance, and actual results may differ from simulated performance being presented.
We seek to deliver to financial advisers the very best of dividend growth ideas, and the Dividend Growth Newsletter does just that for dividend growth investors, in our view. In each monthly edition of the Dividend Growth Newsletter, we provide a portfolio of the best dividend growth stocks that we think will generate a strong and growing stream of cash flows, as well as a forward-looking assessment of the dividend safety of hundreds of firms through our innovative, predictive dividend-cut indicator, the Valuentum Dividend Cushion™. We also provide commentary and analysis about the stocks we hold in the portfolio and on any new dividend growth ideas to consider. Helpful screens that overlay our Valuentum Buying Index™ with dividend-payers that have safe and growing dividends are provided, and we send email alerts notifying you of any changes we may make to our portfolio.
The Nelson Exclusive Publication
President of Investment Research Brian Nelson highlights three new ideas each month to consider, one for income, one for capital appreciation, and a "short" idea (all three will be outside our existing coverage universe). Ideas are delivered to your inbox. They will never be published anywhere else. It's as exclusive as it gets.
In our 16-page equity reports, we offer a fair value estimate for each company, give our opinion on the attractiveness of the stock based on a firm-specific margin of safety assessment, and provide a relative valuation comparison in the context of the company's industry and peers. Each report includes detailed pro forma financial statements, explicit fundamental forecasts, and scenario analysis. A cross section of our ValueCreation and ValueRisk ratings provides a financial assessment of a company’s business quality (competitive position), while our ValueTrend and Economic Castle ratings offer insight into the trajectory of a firm’s economic profit creation (ROIC versus WACC).
Included in each report is a firm's rating on the Valuentum Buying Index (VBI), which combines our rigorous financial and valuation analysis with an evaluation of a firm's technicals and momentum indicators to derive a score between 1 and 10 for each company (10=best). We believe our methodology helps identify the most attractive stocks at the best time to consider buying, helping to avoid value traps and lagging performance due to the opportunity cost of holding a stock with great potential but at an inopportune time. The Best Ideas Newsletter portfolio puts the VBI methodology into practive. Read more about the Valuentum Buying Index rating system, "Value and Momentum Within Stocks, Too."
Insightful, Forward-looking Dividend Reports
We understand the critical importance of income for the dividend investor. As a result, we've developed forward-looking dividend analysis backed by a robust cash-flow based process. As a supplement to our 16-page stock reports, our dividend reports assess the safety of a firm’s dividend through our Valuentum Dividend Cushion™ ratio, the potential growth of a firm’s dividend by evaluating its capacity and willingness to increase the dividend, the historical track record of the company’s dividend performance, and the overall strength of the dividend by putting all of this analysis together. Each report offers our estimate of the future growth rate of the firm's dividend. No other research provider does the type of in-depth analysis that we do for our subscribers.
Forward-Looking ETF Reports
Within each ETF report, we provide in-depth analysis and offer insights to help investors stay on top of key trends impacting exchange traded funds and their underlying industries, companies, and commodities. From evaluating the real estate cycle in REIT-focused ETFs to assessing the business dynamics of top holdings within consumer discretionary ETFs, for example, we focus on key aspects of the investment decision-making process.
We email our Valuentum Ideas100 publication to institutional level members at the beginning of each quarter. In each edition, we highlight 100 of the highest-quality stocks in each of the major market sectors to help you generate new ideas for a diversified portfolio. Companies that make the publication are best-in-class within their respective sectors based on our assessment of their competitive position and underlying business risk. Though quality is our first consideration in this publication, firms that make this expansive report can also be undervalued on the basis of our rigorous, discounted cash-flow process.
We email our Valuentum Dividend100 publication to institutional level members at the beginning of each quarter. This quarterly publication puts the top 100 high-quality, dividend-growth gems at your fingertips. We believe the Valuentum Dividend100 to be a must-have for any income portfolio manager.
We email the Excel-based Valuentum DataScreener publication to institutional level members at the beginning of each quarter. You'll receive our proprietary data and metrics for 1,000 of the top firms in our equity coverage universe to help you pick and screen the best stocks for either you or your clients. Our Excel-based data feed and screener runs the gamut of Valuentum data points from our estimated fair value, price-to-fair value, Valuentum Buying Index to normalized earnings and EBITDA and a variety of technical and momentum measures.

The High Yield Dividend Newsletter portfolio seeks to find some of the highest-yielding stocks supported by strong credit profiles and solid business models, but not always robust traditional free cash flow. Ideas in this newsletter offer higher-yielding opportunities, but also much higher capital and income risk.
