We improve all the time

You know that we improve on the screener all the time based on good research we read and back tests we do.

Remember we use it daily to invest our own money so we have the same goal – solid investment returns using time tested investment strategies.

It is a screener build by investors for investors.

When we wanted to make an improvement recently we found out that the existing software we used could not do it.

 

We found a better alternative

Luckily we found a better alternative that allowed us to add a few improvements we have been planning for a long time.

Last week we finished testing and it’s available.

 

Please take it for a test drive

We think we have found all the bugs but you know what it’s like, there may be one we have not found yet.

Therefore can you please take it for a test drive and let us know if you find anything that looks like it is not working like it should.

If you do please send us a description of the problem and a screenshot – this will help us to solve it as fast as possible.

 

Where to find it

On the next page you will see it looks a lot like the old screener but there are important differences.

 

Company snapshot – quick company research

The most asked for screener improvement was to see at a glance what a company that came up on your screen is all about and that is what we added in the new screener.

To find the information simply click on the company name

 New_grid_screener_2

On the next page you will see a complete summary of what the company is all about.

Improved industry sector selection

The new screener also has a lot more industry sectors you use to only select the sectors you want to include in your search.

A total of 68 industry sectors are available for your use.

Click the drop down arrow in the box below Sectors to choose sectors.

Screener results grouped

Another feature is that you can easily group your results by any of the ratios or indicators in the columns you have selected.

For example, this is helpful to see if there are any industry or country concentrations in the screen you ran.

It of course is only helpful to group the results if the same value appears a few times for example; country, industry, and F-Score.

To group the results simply drag the column heading into the field shown below.

Grouped results look like this:

Filters and the Template can be selected and saved separately

A Filter is a screen you have put together or loaded from the screens you have saved.

A Template is the columns (ratios and indicators) you have selected that you would like to display when you run a screen.

The last major improvement is that the screens you save and how the results of the screen are displayed (the columns shown) can be selected separately.

This feature allows you to – with the same screen – quickly change the columns shown from valuation ratios to momentum. This saves you from having to scroll to the right all the time.

This means you must – before they can be selected - have saved the screens (Filter) and the columns you want to display (Templates). But that is very easy to do.

The filter and template you are using are always shown at the top of the page.

These are all the major changes in the new screener.

We hope you enjoy it.

This is the only thing we could not do.

We could unfortunately not make your own saved screens and watch lists available in the new screener.

Please create and save them again. Sorry about this…
