The Value Point Analysis Financial Forum

Where We Came From

In July 1979, Remote Computing Corporation (RCC) through its Merlin time-shared computer service, made available to the investment community a fundamental stock evaluation model, the Value Point Analysis (VPA) model, and a companion stock technical analysis model, the Stock Technical Evaluation Model (STEM). These two proprietary models were developed by the author of this site, and specifically designed to address the two basic aspects of stock analysis, i.e. fundamental and technical analysis.

STEM was also used by Merrill Lynch in the early 1970's, and by E.F. Hutton and Dean Witter in the mid 1980's for evaluating large numbers of individual stocks on a daily and weekly basis, using the Merlin data base.

The RCC/Merlin brochure and news release presenting the VPA and STEM models are shown below:
