Every week in this article, I either go over a unique way to screen for stocks or Ill publish a proven profitable screening strategy.
Well instead of choosing just one, why not look at them all and create a Custom Consensus of some of our winningest strategies.
This too is a great strategy for picking winning stocks from many diversified approaches. Because aside from using the Zacks Rank for many of the screens, there are many other filters layered on top of it to find the best stocks from different styles.
The screens Im currently using in my Custom Consensus strategy come loaded with the Research Wizard program.
-- Big Money (a price momentum screen and one of my favorites)
-- Breakouts2 (cheap stocks near their 52 week highs)
-- EPS Growth
-- Filtered Zacks Rank
-- Upgrades and Revisions2 (another one of my favorite strategies)
-- Increasing Cash Flows
-- Sales and Margins
-- Winning Ways
(I should probably add that they are all my favorite strategies, which is why theyre included in the program.)
Anyway, simply run each screen, generate a list of qualified tickers for each one, and then count how many times a stock appears in all of those screens.
If a stock appears in two or more screens, it qualifies for the Consensus portfolio.
Here are five stocks from this weeks (8/29/05) Consensus list.
AH Armor Holdings Inc.
(from the EPS Growth screen, and the Upgrades and Revisions2)
JLG JLG Industries, Inc.
(Increasing Cash Flows screen, ROE screen, and Sales and Margins)
(Increasing Cash Flows and ROE)
