Investment Analysis of Flash Issues 142 to 160

The first table presents the Bias Score (B 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. Red are those issues to avoid.

Investment Diary - Fight the Hindsight Bias!
If your intent is to be a winner in your investment you need to set serious goals. Your activity should be treated as an investment. Rate of Return (ROR) is king and is the final measuring stick of your SPEC plays. 
Your specific comic-book investments are to be judged based on their past rates of return, which can be compared against your other investments to determine which investments are the most profitable. If you invest in 10 comic-books at a 100$ each and you sell them and get less than $1000 in return when they are sold, you lost! Therefore you must consider the type of SPEC plays you invest in and the amount of investment effort required.
Understanding and educating yourself about investing, risk management, money management and psychological factors at play will benefit you.Not everyone can or will invest the time and effort it takes to be an successful investor. To begin, write down your goals etc in an investment diary includin…
