Investment Potential and Analysis of Batman #172 to 200

Investment Potential and Analysis of Batman 172 to 200

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.

Table 1 Bias Score. 

As we look as the Bias Scores we see a tales of two worlds. Extreme Positive issue and extreme negative issues. The Lime green stained issues are the strongest and we see those stopping after 182. Interesting.

Table 2 SLN and %DF data analysis show the continued strength in the issues below 183 and some strength in 184, 188-9,194-5 and 197. The rest are on our avoid list.

Table 3 ADF given us the final focus the lime green issues are to be focused on at 9.4 and 8 and some down to grade 6 (orange $). Dark green Issues are only a 9.4 grade focus or better.

Table 4. The Score Card shows issues 172, 174, 178-9, 181-2 and 188 are rated strong in all three data streams. Note the opposite issues are not supported in all data stream. Avoid.

Table 5 Desire Scale. Analysis of this data shows the high desired issues in lime green which are above 80%. Note the final take home is the great divide from 67% to 22 %. Two worlds are the story here. be aware. This is the silver/bronze age and one would think are all issues are strong!. Not so!
