BeanScreen for March 1, 2013

  • Posted by
  • on February 28th, 2013

Of the 404 companies that made the cut for March, these 30 ranked highest. This is not a buy list, only a “fundy health” index…with a splash of momentum (relative strength).

In the table below, each stock’s WSB score is noted, along with the number of consecutive months on the list and % return during that time (adjusted for dividends and splits). Stocks checked off in the Buy Signal column look attractive to us this month.

As always, do your own due diligence cuz we ain’t pros! The BeanScreen is just an idea creator.

The BeanScreen is based primarily on fundamentals. Each month hundreds of companies are screened and scored on a “fundy health” index ranging from 0-100. Over time, an average score and rank is compiled for a select group of stocks. The higher the score, the stronger a company’s overall fundamentals. Here is the breakdown:

70-100 = very strong

60-69 = strong

40-59 = average

0-39 = weak

Below are the six categories (with weighting) that contribute to a stock’s WSB score:

  • 25% Growth Rates
  • 20% Profit Margins
  • 15% Financial Condition
  • 15% Investment Returns
  • 15% 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: Growth Rates, Price Ratios, Profit Margins and Momentum. Deriving a sub-score from these four categories, we arrive at a threshold level that may reveal a buying opportunity.
