  1. Add Backtesting to the Screener

    What would be really useful is the ability to run the filter on a specific dataset e.g. Finals December 2005. All that is required is the set of stocks a filter might have produced for the dataset, together with a price on the final day of the month. The user could then manually work out what to do with all the changes in ownership and get an idea of performance. I accept that running on specific dataset limits the shares that would be thrown out but I can't think of an 'easy' way to do it. What do you think?

    • Screen for Volume Surges & Increases

      Would it be possible to screen a share when its daily volume exceeded its 3 month average by a certain multiple? For example, today Panmure Gordon (PMR) had a volume of 63350 whilst its 3 month average is 9577. I would find it useful if I could screen for similar or more extreme situations. Apologies if this is already possible but I cannot find it if it is!,

      • Show the actual Guru Screen Holdings not just Qualifying stocks

        It would be useful to see for each Guru screener what the actual portfolio of stocks for the quarter actually was / is, ie. perhaps if you clicked on the screener performance graph it would bring up what the portfolio consisted of.

        • Allow screening (& display) of upcoming annual or interim results dates

          would be great to see a list of the next annual or interim results date for each company. at the moment i'm getting this data from another source. if you could screen by this data point that would allow investors to review companies with impending result announcements. you could develop this further so that you can analyse the share price change post-results from previous years - it would be interesting to analyse the likelihood of a company who has had say 2 consecutive share price increases immediately following results announcements getting a 3rd bump in share price in it's next…

            • Create a Screen for Quality, Reliable, Dividend Payers likely to Increase Dividends

              Expand into USA even if limited at first to large caps.Can you devise a screen to look for quality, reliable, dividend payers(not high yield), but those most likely to INCREASE dividends,and trading at levels below their recent averages,ie hopeful to increase in price and offer say 3% yield and prospect of some price increase as well,Like Tupperware

              • Add Margin of Safety valuation methods as screening criteria

                Would be very helpful to identify under/overvalued stocks.

                • Add way to mark off certain stocks as 'reviewed already'

                  Would be great if there was a way of marking those stocks I have already studies when working through the different value screeners so that I remember a few days later which ones I have already ruled out.

                        This is just to notify that we do allow some simple arithmetic on screening ratios on Stockopedia. From the “Add Rule” dropdown in the screener you can choose “Ratio vs Ratio” which provides the functionality desired.

                        Any further queries on this feature please add as comments in this thread.

                      • Publish the 14 day RSI in the screener

                        The 14 RSI is a much more useful tool when it crosses the 50 level, particularly as a buying signal when it moves up from a historically low level and crosses the the 50 level.
                        Can remain oversold/overbought for extended periods so not a signal.
                        The importance of crossing the 50 level is best described by Chris Rowe in his Internal Strength System, Chris now retired.

                        • Add a 'date qualified' column for personal screens

                          Currently it is possible to sort Guru screens by selecting the date qualified column.
                          If this facility could be added to personal screens it would be save the laborious and time consuming task of regularly cross checking personal screens to dig out those that have recently qualified.

                            • Ability to screen across my own Folios

                              Add a SCREENING RULE so that one can run a screener on his own FOLIOS. With this, one is able to create a Folio with an own universe of stocks and run a screener on it. Also, one could be able to add an alarm on stocks in the Folio which do not meet the screener criteria anymore. This can be used as buy or sell alarms.

                              • Give versions of PEG, PEGY, PEGR & CAPE based on EV/EBIT not P/E

                                Algy Hall in Investors Chronicle 04/03/14 discusses a screen he calls "genuine value" based on a ratio similar to PEGY but using EV/EBIT rather than P/E.

                                [The ratio is (EV/EBIT) / (2y ave annualised EPS gwth + historical dividend yield).]

                                A generalisation of this approach to PEGY would be to use EV/EBIT in place of P/E in calculating all PEG-type valuation ratios. The rationale being that if EV/EBIT is superior to P/E because it provides a measure of value which abstracts from capital structure, then using EV/EBIT as the basis of ratios normally based on P/E (such as the PEG…

                                    • List AIM stocks qualifying for business taper relief

                                      Certain AIM listed stock qualify for business taper relief from the HMRC meaning investors pay no CG and the assets are IHT except.

                                      http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/manuals/cgmanual/cg17953.htm

                                      The investors champion provide a list of such shares - however I believe it maybe out of date.

                                      http://www.investorschampion.com/research/all-companies/designation/aim-for-iht-planning

                                      Can you provide such a filter?

                                      • Custom screen tracking

                                        Hi Ed and Dave,

                                        Hope all is good. I am sure that someone else has also commented / suggested this. Would it be possible to introduce a way for us to track our own custom screens i.e. like you have for the gurus which shows when things have qualified and what the performance has been over various periods. Is that possible or is the data requirement excessive?

                                        Also, I was thinking it would be good to have a place where people could upload their own screens (if they want to) to share what is working for them. I know there…

                                        • Allow screening on Country of Operations - to avoid dodgy foreign stocks

                                          'Main country of operation' field. This would highlight Chinese companies with the inherent risk. Currently several have registered offices in Guernsey/Jersey so appear to be UK headquartered. Incidentally, other measures should be considered as these highly suspect companies appearing with fantastic stockranks based on 'creative' accounting are losing investors a lot of money and Stockopedia is at risk of being seen as 'facilitating' this.
