My methodology is based on William O'Neil's brilliant book "How to Make Money in Stocks" and I'm constantly searching for super-winning stocks. I utilize the CANSLIM strategy popularized by O'Neil and I've added minor modifications to suit my needs. The steps in my process are: 1.... More

    This weeks results from my Super Stock Screener.  Screening is an excellent starting point for finding winning stocks.

     

    My thoughts:  A quick post here with the latest Super Stock Screener results after a two-week hiatus.  Lots of changes in the screening results as many names have fallen off for a variety of reasons.  I expected a fair amount of the list to be gone but some of the ones that disappeared are surprising to say the least.

     

    Before I left for vacation there were 48 stocks.  Now that I am back two weeks later there are only 37 stocks.  However, I would expect these surviving 37 to show some pretty good characteristics as they are the survivors of all the recent turmoil regarding the debt ceiling debate.  Definitely a good list to be working from.  We'll see what happens.

     

    As always this is not a buy list but rather a starting point for doing more research.  Stocks that are new are underlined and have an Asterisk (*) next to their company name.

    Note: This screen is fairly wide (EPS>=45%, Sales>=25%, ROE>=10, RS>=90, Price within 20% of High) and I do have tighter screens as well.  To keep the screen results manageable I removed Industry Groups that I either do not believe in (Financial) or are so Commodity that I have no edge in how to pick one from another (Oil&Gas).
