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

 

Re-Load the Large Company Price growth stock Screener to get it back to its original form.

The Score is currently the % change in closing price from the Filtered On date to the Scored On date.

Notice hese results are are NOT the present day 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.

Get the stocks that pass today

Let's screen the stocks in the present.

Click on the "To" between the Filtered On date and the Scored on date then select Today then Refresh.

The result:

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 the same day so the score will be 0%.

The stocks are shaded red or green based on a bad score or good score, respectively. That's why there is a neutral color.

Change Great Score to 0% and notice the results. You would expect all the passing securities to turn green right?

Correct! Wow you are so smart.

Let's change the score to something else. How about Net Income Growth Trailing 12 Months.

Click the  New tab icon

Then name the Tab "score" with a lowercase s.

The program will automatically use this variable as the new score.

For this example, we will drag Net Income growth from the Tools onto our score variable.
