The Trends that Affect Long-Term Value

Everyone with access to the Internet faces the problem of deciding which indicators to watch. So many fundamental indicators and so much historical information is available free of charge that a large part of the task involves making judgments about what not to include.

Based on the belief that the first step has to be the adjustment to core earnings, we proceed with identification of a very limited number of primary trends worth following. Trend-watching—whether technical or fundamental in approach—is far more complex than most people realize, because it is necessary not only to find the trend but to then understand what it reveals. The limitation of our initial search is not meant to imply that we need to look only at these; rather, the short list may be designed to provide general signals about a company's growth, earnings, financial health, and perception in the market. After evaluating these trends, we proceed to the two steps of interpretation and confirmation. In these steps, you view additional trends, both fundamental and technical, to aid in identifying which stocks meet your standards.
