Investment Potential and Analysis of Avengers Annuals_Specials_Giant Size

The first Table presents the Bias Score for all the issues. Bias scores show which issues are being bought by the Insiders (Pros) vs. the Outsiders (Fans Less Serious). The concept of my approach is to focus on the issues being bought BULLISHLY by the investors.

We developed an analysis of data to quantify this Bias (B Score). We mark the issues with the highest Bias with Lime Green followed by a Dark Green staining for issues with a lesser but definite Bias. 

Table 2 data deals with another data stream on comic-book issues. This run’s issues are looked at 3 grades 9.4, 8 and 6. The changes in bias between the different grades are calculated and the SLN numbers were born. The SLN numbers look into each “world” of the I vs. O bias data.  This data has shown historically to be the most liberal and establishes the investment potential across the grades of 9.4, 8 and 6. Very quickly, the green stained are positive issues and red stained issues are a negative and invite a non-focus in only investments

We then compare those SLN numbers and generate a difference number we call the DF. Finally add the I and O SLN numbers together (total) and determine the %DF number for each issue. Green staining is good (Higher Bias) and Grey and Red are issues that are not good for an investment focus. This data stream is more liberal in the rigor and you get the best case for an issue,

The deepest level of analysis we developed is the ADF number (average difference between the I/O worlds) of each issue at each grade. I denote a high I Bias with the orange $.

Lime green stained issues are rated I Biased in all grades or at least 9.4 and 8. Dark green stained issues are only biased at the 9.4 grade while the other grades are overbought relative to the professional investor’s desires.

Table 3 is the stricter data stream and highlights both the issue and grade. We calculate the average difference (ADF) in Issue Bias between the Insider and Outsiders groups.  Lime Green are issues that are I Biased at least 9.4 and 8 grades (High Bias). (Orange $). The dark green issues are support with a Bias in 9.4 grade only. The other issues are to be avoided.

Table 4 is the Score Card information for each issue at the 3 data streams. This allows a top down view across the data streams. We denote the issues supported in all three data streams with a Lime Green staining. Dark Green has only 2 data streams support and yellow issues are supported in one data stream only. 

Table 5 is the last bit of data, the Scaled Desire Ranking. I have grouped 1356 issues of comics that I have covered and developed scaled desire rankings. The percentile that an issue occupies gets wonderful insight into true value between titles. So we position our title and its key issues in context. A score of 99 means that comic issue is desired at the highest level while 1 percentile is the lowest desired issue.

The Bias Scores for these issues are seen in table 1. Analysis reveals that Issue 1 is the show. Its score of 210 is a fairly good one. Issue 2 to 4 are also interesting. The remaining issues are certainly weak in this data stream. Issue 1 is a wonderful story with Thor and Iron Man joining the avengers. That is significant!

Table 2 above is the SLN number data stream and it gives the best case situation.
Note that Issue 1 is still strong here as is 3 and 4 and 9. Issues 2, 5 7 8 and GS 2 have some support here as well. GS 2 is a great story with the death of the Swordsman.

Below is the deepest level we go and we see good investment strength in Issues 1 and 2 at grades 8 and above!. Issue 2 going down into grade 6.  Issue 10 is a surprising one and as well as GS 3 both supported at grade 8 and 9.4. Note 3 to 5, 7 GS 2 and 4 are all a buy at 9.4 only. Interesting we are jumping around with what the data streams are suggesting. Thus we need the score card and desire scale as tie breakers as seen in table 4 and 5.

The score card focuses us back into the first 3 annuals as the best of this bunch!
We see issue 6 as an avoid as well as GS 1 and 5. The others are somewhere between.

The desire scale show us the strength in annuals 1 to 4 and 7 and GS 1 to 4. These are above 80%, that is a nice level for investing. Still some variances and I would scale back the the early Annuals 1 to 3/4. Avoid the rest!
