Add Margin of Safety valuation methods as screening criteria
Would be very helpful to identify under/overvalued stocks.
We discuss this idea here: http://help.stockopedia.com/knowledgebase/articles/611349
I can't understand the reasoning about GIGO for not having DCF in the screener while it's available in the valuation tools. Due to the lack of this feature in the screener, those of us that think DCF valuation is a useful toll with predictable stocks have to do it one by one. If Stockopedia is really to help us speed the process of identifying "potential" mismatches, adding DCF in the screener would be most useful. Thanks

This is exactly what I am looking for as well as a method of risk minimisation when purchasing a stock, and checking its valuation looks overpriced; and doing this on a screen is what I need!
If I could I would post a lot more than 3 votes to this one..!
Dave, you should not worry about being misleading - we investors take responsibility for our decisions. A ranking showing the difference between current share price and implied DCF valuation would be a good starting point for many of us to identify potentially interesting companies. It is another potential starting point - after which the serious analysis still has to be done prior to actually making an investment.
This would be a really good way of finding under valued shares and I strongly urge you all to give it 3 votes.
This would be great. I would give it more than 3 votes but system does not allow me to.

It would be good to be able to use mathematical formulae to build your own valuation method, and to then be able to include this within stock screening, so that we could identify significantly under valued stocks, and that demonstrate the above mentioned 'Margin of Safety'.
