If you Screen, They will come



January 28, 2007 – Comments (1)

I was fooling around with the stock screener on Reuters and came up w/ the following criteria:

Price to Book < Price to Free Cash Flow

-- Idea being that good companies generate a bunch of cash relative to their worth

Long Term Growth > P/E Ratio

-- Basically PEG < 1

ROE > 20%

-- Nothing more than to weed out sloppy practices

Analyst Recommendations < 2

-- Analysts are recommending the stock

Screening can be a really fun way to do research, but in the end you will find stocks that fit all of your criteria and totally suck. Its only a way to start the research process and make your research time much more efficient. On to the results....

52 stocks total - 19 of which are oil services / energy related - Wow (HP, HERO, DO, SLB, ...). But enough on that sector. There are some interesting stocks that came up that I don't know much about. Of the remaining 33, six of them seem to have really nice potential. I've listed them below (w/ CAPS rating):

OSK(*****) - Makes specialty trucks like garbage, fire engines, military, etc. I like this one - I like it a lot.

MED(*) - Smaller than nutrisystem (which came up on the screen), could be a hit - kind of a long shot

ACLI(**) - River transportation services, pretty interesting

TXI(***) - This looks really nice - aggregates and concrete. I've had huge success with MLM and VMC (up over 30% since August). FRK has been getting a bunch of good press lately as well, but I don't see it as buy, yet.

OXPS(*****) - Internet stock trading vehicle. Supposedly it is the bomb with rave reviews.

URGI(*****) - Big women need clothes too! Like my NWY play, I love women's clothes as an investment.

Let me know if one of these strikes your fancy. I'll be doing some intensive research on many of them.

Running numerical screens then double-screening them across CAPS ratings and data is very interesting. Good luck. --DG
