2016 Buy List

Consecutive Months Tracker

 

The BeanScreen is primarily based on fundamentals. Every month hundreds of companies are screened to create a “fundy health” index. 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 (YoY/TTM/3yr/5yr Sales, EPS, etc)
  • 20% Profit Margins (TTM/5yr Gross, operating, net)
  • 15% Financial Condition (D/E, BV/Sh, EV/Rev, FCF/Rev, etc)
  • 15% Investment Returns (MRQ/5yr ROE, ROA, ROC)
  • 12% Price Ratios (P/E, P/S, P/B, P/CF, PEG, FP/E)
  • 8% Momentum (100D RSI, Short Ratio/Float, Ins Ownership, etc)

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.
