The Analysts Journal

In January 1945, the New York Society of Security Analysts published the first Analysts Journal “to advance the interests of our pro¬≠fession.” Benjamin Graham and Irving Kahn were among the distinguished analysts serving on the editorial board. The scope of the Journal included:
  1. Improvement of the statistical techniques used in the analysis of various classes of securities.
  2. Examination of data and statistics available for the analysis of industries.
  3. Studies of business indices, financial ratios and market averages used in security analysis.
  4. Investigation of the adequacy of information contained in annual reports to stockholders.
  5. Study and refinement of the definitions and terminology used in security analysis.
  6. Consideration of ethics and standards in the profession of security analysis.
  7. Study of regulatory policies of government agencies which affect securities.
