LARGE COMPANY PRICE GROWTH: Learn every detail of the “score” in our software.

Open the Large Company Price Growth stock screener and return it to its original form. 

The Return is currently the % change in closing price from the Bought On date to the Returned On date.  Select a Bought on a date at least a year in the past. You should see a colorful heat map as shown below.

 

Get the stocks that pass today.

Let’s screen the stocks in the present.

Click on the “To” between the Bought On and Returned on dates, select Today, then Refresh. It should look like the picture below.

Where did all of the color go?

Remember the score is still the % Change from the Filtered On date to the Scored On Date. They are on the same day so the score will be 0%.

The stocks are shaded red or green based on a bad return or good return, respectively. There is no return when chosen and returned are on the same date. This is why the colors are neutral.

Change Great Return to 0% and notice the results.

All securities in the screener pass, so all of the securities will turn green.
