BRISTOL, Conn., Sept. 21, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- OV Metrics, LLC a provider of proprietary investor-centric portfolio analytic tools, has unveiled a non-traditional valuation system that allows investors—for the first time—to see their share of a company's fundamental earnings.

iEarnings™ is an abbreviation for "investor's earnings" and defined as the arithmetic product of the number of shares owned in a company times that company's reported EPS.  It is a fundamental financial metric that can now be incorporated into the asset allocation process. For example, once the iEarnings™ is determined for each holding, iEarnings™ Weights ("iEW) are automatically calculated, thereby revealing each holding's ratio of PW to iEW. The PW to iEW ratio offers new risk management benchmarks using the companies underlying fundamental earnings.

OV Metrics recognizes the infinitely wide range of valuation strategies and analytical approaches to stock allocation. To accommodate those views, in part, the iEarnings™ Tool allows users to customize EPS data so that estimated earnings can be used. The default EPS data is provided on about 10,000 stocks by EDGAR®Online.

"We want investors to have a tool enabling them to look through standard portfolio valuations and create views of high transparency and relevancy to them. This allows the investor to instantly determine which companies are pulling their weight as far as generating earnings," said Miles Jennings, Owner/Manager of OV Metrics, LLC. "After viewing their portfolios, users can MirrorWeight™ the portfolio to see how their own allocations compare to 1) a relative earnings yield allocation or 2) the MirrorWeight™ Dow Jones 30 Stocks."

"Beyond introducing a new valuation method," continued Jennings, "we wanted to give subscribers a way to publish and share their investment reports and portfolios. Our system for publishing creates an Article on www.iearnings.com and generates a personalized link for that article. The subscriber can then share that article on twitter or Linkedin or send the article's link via e-mail. The portfolio discussed in the article is displayed in the iEarnings Tool with many sorts, rankings, and benchmarks for readers to use and also has its own URL for sharing. See sample articles here and note how the published portfolios' performance is compared to the DJIA."
