Value Line Low Total Return Screen (2/8/2013)

Market Barometers

The average Value Line Low Total Return (VLLTR) forecast is 7.3%, down from 7.7% last week.

Companies of Interest

The average low total return forecast for this issue of the Value Line Investment Survey is 6.1% — and the opportunities are a little sparse. The number of material price forecast reductions continues to outnumber the bolstered forecasts this week.

A couple of recent favorites, Schlumberger (SLB) and National Oilwell Varco (NOV) continue to be worthy of further study.

Materially Stronger: Host Hotels (HST), Helix Energy (HLX)

Materially Weaker: Harte-Hanks (HHS), DreamWorks (DWA), Scientific Games (SGMS), Hyatt Hotels (H), Monster Worldwide (MWW), Forest Oil (FST), RPC (RES)
