“The meanest reversion is the one that refuses to revert in a timely enough fashion.” – Josh Brown

Starting this month, the BeanScreen will be updated quarterly. Over the years, we’ve noticed that the list doesn’t change all that much from month to month anymore, unless earnings are released. And since earnings are a quarterly event, it makes sense to move to a quarterly update. This will save us some redundancy (and time and energy!).

In the table below are our crème de la crème for Q3, along with the number of consecutive quarters each company has been on the list.

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

Consecutive Quarters Tracker


The BeanScreen is based on fundamentals. Each quarter 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% Profit Margins – Gross, operating, net
  • 20% Growth Rates – MRQ/TTM/3yr/5yr Sales, EPS, etc
  • 20% Investment Returns – ROE, ROA, ROC18%
  • 18% Financial Condition – D/E, BV/Sh, EV/Rev, FCF/Rev, et
  • 13% Price Ratios – P/E, P/S, P/B, P/CF, FP/E
  • 4% Misc. – Insider/Inst. Ownership

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.
