Filtered On and Scored On Dates

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

This screener matches every security whose price has increased 20% or more over 252 Trading days (1 year) as of the filtered date. So from Nov 21, 2019 to Feb 21, 2020, the price of these stocks increased at least 20%.

The Return is the change of closing price from the Bought on date to the Returned on date.


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. This method, along with our backtests, are great ways to validate a stock screener. 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 Bought On Date. From November 21 to February 21, these stocks have increased at least 20% in price. The return 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.
