Screener allows the investors to create their own stock-screens or modify the existing ones.
It further allows an investors to:
– sort and customize the results
– save the stock-screen
– set email alerts for the screen
– or share the screen with others
In Screener, everything is a financial variable, just like the cells in MS Excel. Using these variables, you can create your own financial ratios and write equations to screen the stocks.
You can click on “Show all variables” to scan through all the available variables.
Stock screens can be as simple (yet effective) as
Current price < Book value.
You can further combine multiple conditions using
Current price < Book value AND
Price to Earning < 8 AND
Market Capitalization > 200
You can sort the above results and click the save button to save the screen. After saving a screen, you can set alerts for it to receive automatic updates.
If you have any problem finding some variables, or need assistance with the query creation, then you can post it here in comments and we will try to assist you.
