Investor Resource Review: Stock Screen - Benjamin Graham Simple Stock Screen

I collected a lot of stock screens this past year. Most use the free deluxe screener available at the MSN Money website. The screens are sometimes hard to find on the MSN website, so I thought I would share them.

Here is a simple screen based on Benjamin Graham's teachings later in his life.

1. Stocks with earning yields twice the corporate AAA bond rate.

2. Stocks with a leverage ratio of less than two.

3. Optional: A market cap parameter or index parameter.

Here is how you would enter it with the MSN screener:

P/E Ratio: Current <= 9.2 Leverage Ratio <= 2 Market Cap => 1,000,000,000

Here is a link to read more about this screen and how it has worked for the past several years.

Your site looks pretty good! :)

Did you get rid of your GOOG ads?

I was thinking of getting rid of advertising any books on my site, and just putting a link to you. That would make sense, as you have all the books here for sale, as well as excellent reviews!

What say you?
