The Value Score is a relative measurement of value. We derive it by comparing the current price of a stock to six fundamental attributes. We then create a weighted ranking based on those comparisons. For more details and historical test results, see our Value Score support page.Value Score available for subscribers only. Learn more.
Based on basic backtesting results, companies fall into one of three categories. Those which passed 7 or more tests perform the best as a group over the past 20 years, slightly outperforming the S&P 500 index. Companies which passed 5 or 6 tests are average and perform slightly worse than the market as a whole. Those with scores of 4 or lower tend to significantly underperform the market, and should be avoided.

Valuation from Historical Multiples
A comparison of the current valuation of the stock relative to the same company's historical valuation. Eg. If investors used to pay $15 for $1 of earnings but now only pay $10 for $1 of earnings, the company looks undervalued relative to its past.
