All-in-One Screener Now Has 120 Filters: New Improvement

July 17, 2012

Recent Improvement to All-In-One Screener: Multi-Industry, Multiple-Country Filters, Buy Back Filters, updated in May 2013

As we continue to improve our All-In-One Screener, we can glad to introduce the following changes:

1. Global Stock Market: You can screen for stocks in global markets. Simply click on the checkboxes:

1016752422.jpg 2. Multi-Industry Filter: you can now filter stocks by selecting multiple sectors/industries. This will greatly improve your screen speed as you can select multiple industries you are interested

3. Multi-Country Filter: You can now screen from different countries in different regions. A screen short of these two filters are displayed below:

616443734.jpg4. Share Buy-Back Rate: You can filter by the average rate of share reductions over the past 10-year, 5-year, 3-year, and 1-year periods. This will help you find out which companies are really reducing shares over these periods. For instance, a simple filter setting of minimum 3% and the market cap of $100 billion will find that four companies have reduced their share counts by at least 3% a year. These companies are Wal-Mart (WMT), IBM (IBM), Philip Morris International (PM), and Visa (V). A screen shot is below:


5. Historical Price: We have also added filters related to historical prices. You can filter stocks that are traded close to 3-year low, 5-year low, 3-year high and 5-year highs. A screen shot is below:

Please check out our new improved “All-In-One Screener”, as we have added a lot of new filters to the screener. The screener now has more than 120 filters for you to screen your favorite stocks.

These are just some of the filters we added to the screener:

· PE Ratio(ttm)

· Price to Tangible Book

· Price-to-Free-Cash-Flow ratio

· PS Ratio

· EV-to-Revenue


· EV-to-EBIT

· Earnings Yield (Joel Greenblatt)

· Forward Rate of Return

· Shiller PE Ratio

· Market Cap

· Enterprise Value

· Net Cash (per share)

· Net Current Asset Value (per share)

· Intrinsic Value (DCF Projected)

· Median PS (per share)

· Peter Lynch Fair Value

· Graham Number

· Altman Z-Score

· Piotroski F-Score

· Beneish M-Score

· Dividend Growth

It is now very easy to use the screen to reproduce any of the existing screeners we have, including our favorite Undervalued Predictable Companies and Buffett-Munger Screener.

For the next step, we will add the ranking function for the screener. With the ranking function you will be able to screen for top ranked companies in all these filters.

Is there a plan to integrate "owner's earnings" into the tool as defined by Buffett in the 1986 Bershire annual report?

Specifically, P/OE and ROIC (O = Owner's Earnings), which would allow us the ability to search on various ratios based on Owner's Earnings.

Best Regards,

hi Gurulands,

the calculation of Owner's earnings request a replacement cost. The estimate of replacement cost can be tricky. Any suggestions?

Hi Gurufocus,

how about using John Mycroft Psaras version of OE and FROIC? He uses a much simpler version.

Hi Gurufocus. I like the screener. What definition of Quick Ratio are you using?

Hi GF - I really like the screener. However the best screener I have ever used was from MSN Moneycentral - but withdrawn by MSFT. In that each filter could be used like a variable. For example you could screen for:

Stockprice< tangible book value + (6 * Dividend)

This way users can build their own formula's.

Just an idea as you continue to improve your already awesome site.

Good suggestion, Pravchaw.

We will think about how to implement it.

The screener is great but would be even better if it included:

1. price to tangible book

2. % insider ownership

Is there a way to add these?

Thank you.

Gurufocus premium member - 8 years ago
Yes, we are in the process of licensing new data and will add more filters.
Aldandrea - 7 years ago    Report SPAM
Any progress on a Price/Tangible Book screen and a Percent-Inside-Ownership screens? These would be great additions to the screener.


Aldandrea - 7 years ago    Report SPAM
Any time frame when the Price/Tangible Book and % Insider Ownership may be available in the screener?


Aldandrea - 7 years ago    Report SPAM
Please disregard, sorry.

i like the formula concept related to industry norms.

for example ( price to sales)/( price to sales industry average) or

pe/pe industry average

comparing valuation ratios to industry averages can be helpful in identifying possible under valued stocks.

any chance we can use formulas in comparison to industy norms?

Sm2200 - 6 years ago    Report SPAM
I suggest that you add a list of instructions or a tutorial on how to use the ALL IN ONE screener.

Any work still being done on incorporating Buffett's owners earnings?
