2015 Buy List

Consecutive Months Tracker

 

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.
