Allow simple arithmetic on screening criteria
e.g. to calculate: DiviYield / PERatio
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.
Any update on this since 2011?
Ratio vs Ratio is useful but it only allows: R1 vs <number> * R2
which rearranges as: R1 / R2 vs <number>
It would be useful to also be able to do: R1 * R2 vs <number>
e.g. to allow avg daily volume * price > X
to compute and test avg daily value
If this feature could be available in Folios too it would be great. Also in the Folio, all of the fields don't seem to be available, eg broker forecasts and Notes.
Also not just allow for custom arithmetic but also allow for One Field to be Greater than an Other
ie you could thus Screen for Net Debt > Total Tangible Assets
