Subscribe to RSS feed Are You Using The New Stock Screener? Why or Why Not?

Updated: 22 Nov 2016 By evankoh posted on 22 Nov 2016  -  11,973 views


Since the introduction of the new stock screener, I have received numerous requests to add more metrics and/or to add more ways to build the constraints so that different strategies can be easily implemented using the new screener.

Hence the number of metrics have grown, from the initial 30 to the current 60+ different metrics covering both technicals and fundamentals. The number of ways to build the constraints have also doubled from the initial 2 to 4 so that you can easily translate various trading strategies easily.

However, I noticed there are two groups of relatively different users:

  • One group uses the stock screeners regularly and heavily

  • The other group almost never looks at it

I am curious as to why and have created a cafe post hoping to gather more feedback. I would really appreciate it if you could take come time to share your "why"s.

If you are using it, what do you like about it? Is there anything else that can be added to make it even better for you?

If you are not using it, why not? Do you simply do not like screeners? Are there other better screeners out there you are using? Or is it not user-friendly enough for you to easily understand and use it?

Happy investing!

sggamelover - Just started using it. I found a problem. After I added a new condition to an existing Screener, it show successful. But when I click the Screener in Saved Screeners list again, the record didn't get updated.

evankoh - Ah... You would need to save it again based on current implementation.

lazysingaporean - Just started using it too. Found it really good! It has so many metrics to choose from and constraints are very useful too. Can I make a suggestion to have 2 more types of constraints? One is so that we can select the top or bottom 10%/ 20%/ 30% of stocks from a certain metric. Two is that we can perform a multiplication or division of the metrics, such as dividend yield divided by price/book ratio. Thank you! And, is it possible export them via csv or excel?

A Quick Update
It has been a week since the survey. Thank you to all who responded to the survey. The survey results are quite open to interpretation. If we simply look at the absolute number of people willing to pay to keep SGXcafe going, the logical choice would be to close SGXcafe as it is far from sufficient. However, if we look at the percentage of people willing to pay, it is quite encouraging as 42% of the ...

Do You Really Know How To Calculate Current Yield?
This seemingly simple equation is in fact not that easy to compute.

English Definition: Current yield is an investment's annual income (interest or dividends) divided by the current price of the security (Source: Investopedia). Mathematical Definition: ...
