Super Value Guru - 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 stock screen takes several of the common criteria used by various value investors.

Screening Parameter: Last Price <= 0.75*5-year High Price

Screening Parameter: Pre-Tax Margin <= 0.9*Pre-tax Margin: 5-Year Avg.

Screening Parameter: Price/Book Value <=2

Screening Parameter: Price/Sales Ratio <= 0.75* Industry Average Price/Sales Ratio

Screening Parameter: Price/Cash Flow Ratio <= 15

Screening Parameter: ROE: 5-Year Avg. >= 7.5

Screening Parameter: Debt to Equity Ratio <= 0.9* Industry Average D/E Ratio

Screening Parameter: Current Ratio >= 1

Screening Parameter: Dividend Payout Ratio Above 85% False Now

Screening Parameter: Market Cap. >= 500,000,000

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

Another good filter for value investing is http://www.stock4d.com.

It also allows you to back date to test your strategy.

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.
