Customized Filters in All-In-One Screener – New Feature Announcement

August 12, 2015

Ever since we released our All-In-One Screener, we keep getting requests from our subscribers for filters that are customizable. We are very pleased to announce that now you can create customized filters with GuruFocus All-In-One Screener.

Please look at the screenshot below. If you click on the “Customized” tab of the All-In-One Screener, you will see a screen like below.


After you click on the “Create New Filter” button, you can type into the box the parameters you want to filter. As you type, the relevant parameters will appear and you can select from the list for the ones you need.

step 2

+, -, *, / () and numbers are allowed in the formula you enter. You can create filters such as:

  • ROE > P/E
  • ROE >= P/E
  • ROE > 2*(P/E + P/B)

After creating those, please name them. You will be able to re-use them later. You can activate or de-activate them by clicking on the checkbox. Your formula will be validated after you finish.

If what you enter is not an equation, such as P/E * P/S, you will be given two boxes to see the minimum and maximum values of the parameter.

The results for these parameters will also be displayed in the “Active Filters” tab.

Please see the screenshot below for the example.

Please give it a try. We love to hear from you and we want to make sure that it can meet your needs.

To further improve the All-In-One Screener, we will add backtesting functions to it so you can back test your strategies.

As always, we keep adding new features to the already powerful tool box for our Premium Members. If you are not a Premium Member, we invite you for a 7-day Free Trial.

Given GuruFocus' amazing culture of always becoming better, please let members know if you ever want funds for private equity investments- I'm betting you would have user suport. Just as Gurufocus is user and member focused, members are becoming more and more dedicated to wanting to help Gurufocus. Thank you for creating an amazing platform and culture dedicated to helping members.

*Readers, if you are not a member yet, you have no idea what you are missing. At least give the free trial a chance.

***I am not employed by GuruFocus, and GuruFocus's tools help me make great money, with less research time; which gives me more time with family.

Thank you GuruFocus.

Hi, I am new to this custom filter. You only have 10 year median ROC. Can you show me how to create a 5 year median ROC active filter?

It looks really good, but will it be possible to customise your own growth rates? so that you can filter on ratios that had growth compare last years ratio or quarter.

Would be nice I think :)

It would be a great feature if you could add the feature to include "AND" and "OR" to the equations
