|Abstract:||Investment in stock market involves many decision criteria and variables; hence investors are increasingly relying on the ratings provided by rating agencies to guide their stock selections. However, do these stock ratings have information value? Are these agencies' ratings valid? We establish the dominance cone principle and use the Value Line stock ratings to demonstrate the application of the dominance principle. Our results based upon limited data show that the Value Line rating does not support the notion that better rating results in better rate of return during 2006-2007.|
