Investment Potential and Analysis of Thor, X-Men, and Strange Tales Annuals, Specials and Giant Size

Investment Potential and Analysis of Thor, X-Men, and Strange Tales Annuals, Specials and 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.

Analysis of the Bias Score Data for this group it is clear that the Strange Tales Annuals 1 and 2 are the highest desired comics! The B Scores are very strong. 6700 and 3700 ish suggest a strength for long term investing. Also Thor Annual 1 is a strong investment issue as well with a score of 1000 ish!. Note these overpower the Xmen titles! XMen 1 and 2 as well as GS 1 and 2 are definite issues that deserve our attention but the B Scores are the story here. Note Thor Annual 2 and GS Thor 1 are on the buy list as well. Those issues in red are to be avoided unless other data suggests otherwise.

The SLF and %DF data stream shows the strength for Thor Annuals and GS issues as well as the Strange Tales issues 1 and 2. Note Xmen are not rated high here. The Thor 1, 7,  GS 1, and ST 1 and 2 annuals are the strongest in this data stream. 
Thor 7 annual is a focus here. This issue has the Eternals and is a very interesting story.

The ADP data stream tends to clarify investment potential. We see that GS Xmen 1. Thor Annual 1 are good buy candidates at 8.0 and up and 6.0 up for the GS Xmen 1.  Xmen Annual 1, Thor Annual 2, GS Thor 1 and ST Annuals 1 and 2 at 9.4 grades or better are the call here.

The score card data looks from Top Down and we see Thor Annual 1 and 2, GS Thor 1, and ST Annuals 1 and 2 are the strongest as you look across all Data Streams. GS Xmen 1 and Annual 1 are recommended by 2 Data Streams. Use the ADP for a final call (Table 3).

Desire Scale Rankings give a long term prediction of investment potential. ST Annual 1, 2. Thor Annual 1, Xmen GS 1, Thor Special 2, Xmen Special 1, ans Xmen GS 2 are in the 90% levels! Here are the investments for you to focus on. The one above 80% are solid as well. The red issues are on the avoid list.
