Blue Book - July 2019

  • Jul 12, 2019

Our group coverage spans most of the traditional groups as defined by Standard & Poor’s and Morgan Stanley Capital International. At times, we found ourselves in disagreement with the S&P/MSCI “standardized” group delineation, but this structure was maintained, with minimal modifications. We have, however, added additional component stocks to all groups and adopted our proprietary approach to component weightings. What You Will Find In This Book For each group included in this publication, an array of fundamental statistical information is provided. Data presented includes: Price/Earnings Ratios, Price/Sales, Estimated Long Term Growth, and Relative Strength rankings. Individual stock performance is shown for the current month and year-to-date.
