Stock Screener

Our powerful screener with a video introduction

Portfolio123's screener offers a comprehensive method to screen for stocks that meet your criteria and simulate their past performance. The unique features include:

  • Complete sets of technical, fundamental, and estimate functions 

  • Advanced factors like Piotroski F-score

  • Sorting of the results using your own systems or predefined ones

  • Custom starting universes

  • Top tier data: FactSet and ICE Data (S&P Compustat & CapitalIQ if you have a license)

  • Advanced tools like rolling backtests and hedging

  • The ability to enter either pre-built "wizard" rules or "free-form" rules



Below is an example of a screen with three rules. The first one screens for stocks in the SP500 universe. The second seeks only those whose price is above the 50-day average. Finally, the last rule is a "Wizard" rule that screens for stocks whose 5-year sales growth rate is in the top 20% of their respective industry. Wizard rules are a great learning tool. They present the function in English but you can easily see the underlying free-form rule when you click on the magic wand.

To run the screen click on Run Screen. A default report with the stocks that pass all the filters is shown below. You can change the report used or create your own. If you chose a Ranking System in the Settings the stocks will be sorted by the overall rank.

There are many pre-built screens to help you get started. Some are designed to replicate strategies from famous investors, other are from our analysts, and some simply showcase different screening features.
