The BeanScreen is based primarily on fundamentals. Each month hundreds of companies are screened on a “fundy health” index ranging 0-100. Over time, an average score and rank is compiled for a select group of stocks. Below are the six categories (with weighting) that contribute to the screen:
- 30% Growth Rates
- 20% Profit Margins
- 15% Financial Condition
- 15% Investment Returns
- 10% Momentum
- 10% Price Ratios
Within each category are an assortment of parameters that are uploaded into the BeanScreen via Randy Hamerlink’s stock market functions add-in program for Excel. The data is bench-marked and scored using our custom formula.
In creating the Buy Signal, we zero in on what we believe are the most critical aspects of a stock’s overall health and potential: Growth Rates, Profit Margins, Price Ratios and Momentum. Deriving a sub-score from these four categories, we arrive at a threshold level that may reveal a buying opportunity.
The BeanScreen is just an idea creator, but if you’re interested in learning how these ideas translate into real-time trades and investments for us (and possibly you), check out our Ditto Trade signal service here.
