Previously, I mostly viewed "What stocks to buy" as a ranking problem. What this means is that I would rank all the stocks available based on some criteria and pick the top few to purchase. Hence, tools that I built tend to generate a score and ranked accordingly. Examples are
Dividend Strength and
Scorer (Scorer was previously known as Screener).
However, after taking the
eVIMC course and also hearing feedback from several users, I felt that it was perhaps better to build a more traditional stock screener that will allow me to easily shortlist stocks instead of ranking them.
As such, I would like to introduce the new
Stock Screener which will allow you to easily shortlist stocks based on conditions determined by you. As of now, there are 30 metrics to choose from, but I intend to add more, especially technical-related metrics. If there are other metrics you wish to see, feel free to let me know. Other features it currently has includes the ability to save the conditions, run it daily and have the results delivered to you together with the daily market update email.
To illustrate, here is how I am currently using the Stock Screener:
Monitoring my Portfolio: Using the sell signals that I've learnt from the eVIMC course and other resources to identify potential stocks in my portfolio to sell.
Monitoring my Watchlist: To monitor stocks that I am interested but still waiting for the correct time to enter the market (i.e. for the buy signal to be triggered).
Screen for Stocks: Simply running different combination of conditions to shortlist stocks.
As usual, feel free to feedback to me.

Coming Back Soon: Dividend Information and More
It has been two weeks since my last update. I am happy to share that most administrative issues with SGX and third party data providers have been handled. Next on the list would be to tackle the technical issues of integrating data that I have licensed into SGXcafe. I have already started integrating dividend information, since this is something numerous users have been asking me about. At this point ...
Why and How I Use Dividend Strength
As many of you would know, I initially built SGXcafe for my personal investment needs. Hence many tools here exist because I use them personally for my own investing. iAssist and iSuggest were tools that I built in an attempt to help me diversify my portfolio as it was rather challenging to decide which stock to add to my portfolio among the several hundred stocks listed in SGX. However, there is a ...
Trapped in Chennai, India
On a recent business trip to India, I was stranded in Chennai because of massive flooding everywhere, including the airport, due to the worst rains the city has seen in the recent century. I shall skip the details of who, what, when, where, why and how I was trapped and escaped, but focus instead on what I felt during my time there. The Rich vs The Poor It was Day 3 since the heavy flooding started. ...
