Filtered On and Scored On Dates

PRICE GROWTH: Screen for companies that went up 20% over a year.

The Filter matches every security whose price has increased 20% or more over 251 Trading days (1 Year) as of the filtered date.

So from July 4 2012 to Jul 4 2013 these stocks increased at least 20%

The Score is the change of closing price from the Filtered on date to the Scored on date.

Explanation

Notice how these results are are NOT the current results. Why?

By default we screen for the companies roughly 3 months in the past so that you can use the score function to test how, on average, the stocks performed up until today. That method along with our back test are great ways to validate if a stock screener actually works. It is easy to come up with a stock screener that you think should perform well against the market, but it is very important you test how the screen performed in the past.

Remember the stocks passed on the FIltered On Date . Meaning from July 4 2012 to July 4 2013 these stocks have increased at least 20% in price. The score tells us how these stocks performed from the filtered on date until the scored on date (Today).

Check out the results overview statistics that are located in the Messages tab.

So the Results Overview  tells us that after stocks grew at least 20%, they, on Average, grew another 11.6% while the market grew 5.2% during that time.
