Comeback Stocks - 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 what I found.

This screen looks for out of favor large caps. The screen looks for the largest members of the S&P 500 who have had a negative return in the last year. The 10 with the greatest precent change are then considered. Here are the parameters for the screen:

Screening Parameter: S&P Index Membership = S&P 500

Screening Parameter: Market Capitalization >=$10,000,000,000

Screening Parameter: Last Price >= 5

Screening Parameter: 52-week price change percentage: <= 0

Here is a link to the MSN article by Harry Domash with a description of how and why the above parameters are used.

Thanks for sharing this Steven. MSN deluxe is one of my most preferred screener. And the best part is, it's free :)

Cheers and profitable trading,

I have a web site where I give advise on penny stocks and stocks under five dollars. I have many many years of experience with these type of stocks. If their is anyone that is interested in these type of stocks you can check out my web site by just clicking penny stocks. I would like to take a moment to talk about low price stocks not classic penny stocks or stocks under one dollar the term most people most often think of when the word penny stock is used. Their are companies of really decent quality trading under five dollars’ but for every one company trading under five dollars that is of decent quality their are maybe ten of poor quality. So the really big difference between those investors that are tremendously successfull when it comes to investing in low price stocks and those investors that lose enormous amounts of money investing in stocks under five dollars’ is having a great deal of knowledge and experience when it comes to low price stocks’ or having a total lack of knowledge and experience when it comes to low price stocks. Finding quality stocks under five dollars requires a lot more research than finding a decent stock above ten dollars.
