Using Patent Quality Information for Investment Analysis

Patent/Innovation Data and Investment Analysis

Detailed statistical data on the quality of a company's patent and innovation portfolio can be used to improve investment returns. One aspect of such valuations is pricing a portfolio of some or all of a company's patents. The November 2004 edition of the Journal of Accountancy has a nice intro article to such valuations, 20 Steps For Patent Pricing. This information, plus other investment analysis of patent-related stocks, is provided below. Comments in brackets "[]" are ours. Some links are for sites that are subscription-based (e.g., Barron's).
