The objective of the Valana analysis facility is to deliver to the subscriber the final analysis outcome and ratings obtained for a particular company within 48 hours of the financial data being available to the Valana team.

This will enable investors to use the window of opportunity and get in on the ground floor before the institutional investors and the big players would have fully digested and interpreted the financial fundamentals as contained in the financial statements just published.

The single page analysis outcome will be forwarded to each subscriber via e-mail and it will be in an easy to understand and user-friendly format.

It is not the intention of the Valana facility to bore you with a long and cumbersome review of market conditions, economic fundamentals, environment impact factors and other opinions and often misleading predictions of future moves and performance.

With the Valana facility you don't need any expert knowledge or fancy computer software programs and/or other miracle prediction models.

Depending on your personal rating benchmark chosen or risk profile criteria you can now make a really good investment decision within minutes without any time or effort lost on doing your own research, analysis or cumbersome homework.

The objective of the Valana analysis is to identify good value companies with favourable odds to perform well during the next year or longer.

Companies that suffered an earnings loss or where negative return on equity was obtained will not be subjected to analysis, simply because they will almost always obtain a very low fundamental value rating. The only time such a company may still be considered is if there is acceptable evidence that such a company should strongly turn around during the next reporting period. The Valana methodology provides for identifying these opportunities as well.

A Valana subscriber could expect to receive approximately 300 analysis feedback reports each year, within 48 hours of the financials being published. This of course gives you the unique opportunity to select companies you may wish to invest in before the "big players" finalise their positions.

Below is a typical example of the feedback report that will be sent to each subscriber:


In certain cases a Valana analysis may also be done for a company when the interim period results are published, but only if the trigger guide utilised by the Valana model identifies good movement potential to justify such an interim analysis.
