Do you have a quick way to select the companies you wish to do deeper analysis? It is very useful to have a good screening method that you can quickly apply to select these stocks, preferably within a short time of not more than 5 minutes.
Let me share here one of my screening methods.
1. Selecting Growth Stocks
Look at the Revenue, PBT and Earnings (or diluted EPS) over a 5 or 10 year period.
Select those companies that can deliver both topline and bottomline growths of 15% or more.
2. The earnings must translate into positive CFO and positive FCF (= CFO-Capex).
3. The debt of the company must be reasonable. Debt/Equity < 50%.
4. The PBT margin must be growing or at least maintain over these years. Gross margin of at least 50% and net margin of at least 10%.
5. Preferably the cash and cash equivalent should be more than the total debts of the company.
6. ROE of at least 15%.
7. The company should have declared dividends regularly, preferably also increasing dividends over the years.
8. DPO ratio should be less than 50% and more than 30%.
