Stock screeners are one of the most widely misued tools by investors.
The reason? People try to overcomplicate it. Complex, multi-variable scans are often thought to be superior, even though simpler measures consistently outperform.
Believe it or not, most of the greatest investors of all time used relatively simple investment formulas. And with the data and tools available to us today, we can replicate their methods with minimal decision making of our own.
Even if you prefer to pick your own stocks, screeners can drastically shorten your list of candidates.
Most of our screens have been beating the market since inception. Click here to review their performance.
We even set up free tutorials detailing how to replicate some of Wall Street's legends! Click the links below:

Walter Schloss, a fellow disciple of Ben Graham, produced an enviable 50-year track record by simply buying stocks near book value. Ben Graham eventually retired out of boredom, finding it too easy to pick winning stocks below net working capital. Lynch looked for fast growers with PEG's below 1.0 or stalwarts trading below their earnings line.
There are countless methods to outperforming the indexes. And most of them have one thing in common - their simplicity.
We tried other scanners, but none of them had everything we wanted. Most focused on technical patterns which we put little faith in.
So... we built our own. Problem solved.
The GuruFocus All-In-One Screener is the most comprehensive fundamental stock screener available today. And it has been making stock picking easier for us since day one.
