Stock Screens For Short-Term Investing:
Available Separately From Monthly Subscription

Most investors, and indeed most of our subscribers, are long-term investors. But we recognize that there are some investors who enjoy following the market on a daily basis and trading frequently. This is even more practical now that some discount brokers have adopted a zero-commission policy for stock trades.

During our research into developing screening criteria suitable for mutual funds and pension funds, we came across several stock screens that produced extremely high returns, but the average holding period was only 13 days. Furthermore, only 18 stocks passed the screening criteria at any given time. The holding period was too short and the number of stocks was too small for a mutual fund or pension fund, but was suitable for individuals drawn to short-term trading.

Annual Returns of Our Short-Term Stock Screening Strategies

Annual Returns of Our Short-Term Stock Screening Strategies

After developing the screening criteria, we wondered what would happen if we combined some of the stock screens. We noticed that certain combinations of the screens resulted in a handful of stocks with even higher annual returns:

Annual Returns of Stocks Appearing In Multiple Screens

Annual Returns of Stocks Appearing In Multiple Screens

Stocks that appeared in more than one of four screens resulted in an annualized return of 97.6% per year. Naturally, this assumes reinvestment of profits and dividends. This "multiple-screen" strategy produced, on average, three stocks that passed the criteria at any given time. Three stocks is far from the minimum to run a mutual fund (one of our research goals), but enough to add spice to an individual's portfolio. Combining results from all screens resulted in an average of 18 stocks in which to invest.

For several years we published the best of these strategies on a daily basis, but because we are slowly transitioning toward semi-retirement, we've decided to stop publishing the results of these screens due to the daily time commitment and the fact that most of our subscribers are long-term investors, not short-term traders. Please note that even in retirement we will continue to publish our long-running core portfolios.

Contact Us To Obtain The Screening Criteria

You do not have to be a subscriber to purchase and use the screening criteria. The stock screens are now available for purchase for a one-time fee of $475, with the condition that the criteria not be published. Screening software is available from a third party and usually costs $16.58 per month if you select their $199 annual plan. We only recommend their stock screener because of the availability of the screening criteria. It is possible the criteria could be available on other screeners.

Please contact us if you are interested in obtaining the screening criteria to use on your own.
