  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?

        under review  ·  Dave Brickell responded

        We do plan to do more on the RNS analysis side of things, but it’s likely to be next year.

      • Add detailed broker estimates data - i.e. line item forecasts

        Similarly to hemscott and other providers.

          This is a very hard feature to implement. While there are some UK brokers that publish this data and are willing to share it, the major international brokers are not. Every single user of this data would have to sign an individual contract with each broker (Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley etc) in order to prove they were a client.

          This is clearly impossible, so we currently support consensus estimates. Our plan is to display the full range of min, max, standard deviation and breadth of estimates, target prices and history in the Smart Money portal. This is much more useful.

        • Add a table of Stock 'Breakout' moves

          All websites have a new highs screen, but nobody has a breakout table. This would show the number of days that a stock has been below the previous high when the new high is hit - you can't really follow "How to make Money in Stocks" without it. I have to use a charting package to find the breakouts which really make CANSLIM work. The screen would also have to show the depth of the trough (i.e. if the stock topped at 100 and went to 75 before going back up that would be a 25% drop, which is important…

          • 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.

            • Run screens against individual portfolios rather than the whole stockmarket/sector

              You can then have a screen with sell criteria which you can run against your portfolio to decide when to sell. For example, Kirkpatrick suggests selling stocks when their 3 month RS < 52. or when P/S <= 7 or >= 67.
              Alternatively, one might have bought shares with ValueRank and QualityRank > 90 but want to sell when the ValueRank is < 60 for example.
              At the moment one has to create a screen for ValueRank against the whole market and the result is limited to 200 shares.

                We are planning on building on an entire portfolio management module to the website that incorporates sell rules/notifications according to personalised and standardised criteria. We’ll also be launching a Top Down market timing module that may help in this regard too. We’ll keep you informed as to how this develops.

              • Add Margin of Safety valuation methods as screening criteria

                Would be very helpful to identify under/overvalued stocks.

                    Can anyone be more specific about what is wanted here?

                    We do have EV / Free Cash Flow as a screenable ratio. See EV / Free Cash Flow, Trailing 12m (EV / FCF) in the Glossary of Screenable Items (http://www.stockopedia.co.uk/ratios/), i.e. http://www.stockopedia.co.uk/ratios/ev-free-cash-flow-trailing-12m-337/

                    Or would you like it as a valuation model? If so, how would that differ from a DCF analysis? http://www.stockopedia.co.uk/valuation/?ticker=LON:ATK

                    Or would you like it on the company specific stock report? That’s the most difficult given space constraints.

                  • 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 visual red and green flags in Folios to show shares above and below certain targets

                      Add red flags alerts for below purchase prices and green for say 20per above purchase price alongside folio selections.

                        • Create an API and allow automation

                          I would like to be able to run Screens automatically at say 6am (after your fundamental update) and then to have those results,e.g. a CSV file saved into a data cloud of my choice or emailed to a designated email address, etc.

                          If you could write into my data cloud or send me an email, I could use the fantastic free web service IF This Then That (https://ifttt.com/wtf) to trigger the processing of those files by my software in order to produce materials that are useful to me, e.g. I have developed my own charting packages for Point…

                            • 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.

                              • Add a lower Subscription price tier

                                For an individual, small trader, I find your subscription price uneconomic. It is way higher than my monthly dealing costs. What about a high price for the corporates (this service can save them having analysts) and a low price for us little guys?

                                  Good fundamental data & analysis costs money, and we want to offer the very best data money can buy. If you have concerns about the price, do raise a support ticket via the Green Button – we sometimes have special offers available.

                                    Thanks for the suggestion. Happy to discuss but I’d say we do already have this feature (i.e. Checklists). If you go here (http://www.stockopedia.co.uk/checklists/), you can load up the stock and then click down the screens on the right to see how a given stock passes or fails.

                                    If you mean a simple numerical score, it wouldn’t be that meaningful given the range of different (and sometimes contradictory) criteria between, say, growth based screens and value based screens.

                                    • 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?

                                      • Allow customisation of home page to allow Currencies, Commodities etc to be tracked

                                        Perhaps configurable within the main index box, top right of users home page. No need to have another box, just allow user to pick the main indices, exchange rates & commodity prices they wish to track (max of 10??). e.g. I personally would have POO, £/$, £/€ in place of Nikkei, Hang Seng etc

                                        • Enable users to see price charts in a pop-up window 'Your Stock Alerts' list

                                          In Your Stock Alerts list, the price chart should automatically open in a small window when the cursor touches the company name. This makes it easier to judge whether to reset price rules.
