The BeanScreen is 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:

  • 25% Growth Rates – YoY/TTM/3yr/5yr Sales, EPS, etc
  • 25% Profit Margins – TTM/5yr Gross, operating, net
  • 20% Financial Condition – D/E, BV/Sh, EV/Rev, FCF/Rev, etc
  • 15% Investment Returns – MRQ/5yr ROE, ROA, ROC
  • 10% Price Ratios – P/E, P/S, P/B, P/CF, PEG, FP/E
  • 5% Misc. – Short Ratio/Float, Insider 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.
