Price Volatility  (Relative Volatility)  This is a measure of the propensity of a stock’s share price to fluctuate widely. This indicator is calculated as follows: The stock’s calender weekly percentage magnitude change over the last 13 calender weeks is averaged. The stock’s final volatility is found by multiplying its average by 10.
Price vs. 200 Day Moving Average  For scanning purposes, the Value of this criterion is expressed as a percentage of the moving average. For example, stocks with a Value greater than 100 are trading above their 200day moving average.
Price vs. 40 Day Moving Average  For scanning purposes, the Value of this criterion is expressed as a percentage of the moving average. For example, stocks with a Value greater than 100 are trading above their 40day moving average.
Relative Strength 1Yr (vs SP500)  The relative change in price of a stock over the past year compared to the change in the SP500 over the same time. The calculation is : (Latest Close Price of Stock / Latest Close Price of SP500) / (Close Price of Stock 1 year ago / Close Price of SP500 1 year ago) * 100.

Stochastic is a measure of where the stock is with in a price range for a specific time period. A stochastic of 100% would mean the stock price is at the high of the range, while a stochastic of zero would mean the price is at the low. As a general rule, stocks above 80% in this indicator are considered over bought and values of less than 20% are considered oversold.

Fundamental Criteria:
Asset Turnover  Equals revenue divided by the average of total assets from the most recent two balance sheets. It measures the ratio at which each dollar of assets will generate a dollar of revenues.
Beta  The coefficient which measures the volatility of a stock's returns relative to the market (S&P 500). It is based on a 36/60month historical regression of the return on the stock onto the return on the S&P 500:
Ri = a + (Rm) + e
where Ri is the monthly total returns on the stock, a is the stock's Alpha, Rm is the monthly total returns on the market (S&P 500), and e is a random error term. A minimum of 12 monthly returns are required for this calculation.
A beta of 1 means that the market and the stock move up or down together, at the same rate. That is, a 5% up or down move in the market should theoretically result in a 5% up or down move in the stock. A beta coefficient of 2 suggests that the stock will tend to fluctuate twice as much as the market. That is, if the market moves up 5%, then the stock should move up 10%. A beta coefficient of 0.5 indicates that the stock will move onehalf as much as the market, either up or down.
A negative beta indicates the stock tends to move in the opposite direction from the general market. That is, the stock price declines when the overall market is rising, or rises when the overall market is declining. Negative beta stocks are rare.
Capitalization  This is the latest closing price of a share times the number of shares outstanding as indicated in the latest quarterly report. Sometimes called Market Valuation. This is useful for controlling the size of the company you are scanning for. You can also sort by this value if you wish to rank the companies by size. The units are in millions of dollars.
Debt to Equity Ratio  From the most recent fiscal quarter, it is the Long Term Debt divided by Common Stock Equity.
Dividend Growth Rate 5Yr  This is the compound (shows accrued interest/dividend reinvested) annual dividend 5 year growth rate. The units are in percentages.
Dividend Yield  This is the latest dividend divided by the share price. It reads in percentage.
Earnings ($Millions) 1Yr  This is the sum of the trailing 4 quarters of net income (profit) as taken from the quarterly report. This is not the earnings per share. This value will also provide some insight into company size. It reads in millions of dollars.
Earnings as a percent of Sales 1Yr  This is an indication of profit margin. Weak profit margins are often a sign of hidden vulnerability in a stock that appears to have high earnings. Be careful of companies that pay high dividends while having low profit margins. Within industries, the companies with the highest profit margins are usually the leaders. It is a sign of good management. This reads in percentage.
Earnings Growth Rate 5Yr  The compound annual earnings per share 5year growth rate. In looking for quality companies, well established companies of good size, this criterion is indispensable. The units are in percentages.
EPS Latest Qtr  Fully Diluted earnings per share from Total Operations, as taken from the latest 3month ending period.
EPS Percent Change (Latest Q)  The percentage change in earnings per share from the comparable quarter a year before. Timely stocks will usually have strong recent quarterly earnings to validate the annual earnings strength. This reads in percentage.
EPS Percent Change (2nd Q back)  The percentage change in earnings per share from the comparable quarter a year before.
EPS Percent Change (3rd Q back)  The percentage change in earnings per share from the comparable quarter a year before.
EPS Percent Change (4th Q back)  The percentage change in earnings per share from the comparable quarter a year before.
EPS Percent Change (Latest Yr)  The percentage change in earnings for the latest 4 quarters compared to the preceding 4 quarters. An appropriate criterion to include in many types of screens. Also a common criterion to sort by, with the best earners on top.
Long Term Debt to Equity Ratio  The fiscal year Longterm debt divided by the Total Common Equity.
Latest Float  Shares outstanding minus shares held by insiders. Reported in 1000's.
Latest Net Profit Margin  The aftertax Net Income from Total Operations of the latest 4 quarters, divided by the latest 4 quarters Operating Revenues.
Latest Short Interest Ratio  The short interest shares divided by average daily volume, representing the number of days of average trading needed to cover the shorts.
Latest Total Net Income  Includes all the operations (continuing and discontinued) AND all the other income or charges (extraordinary, accounting changes, tax loss carryforward, and other gains and losses).
Net Profit Margin (post tax)  The aftertax Net Income from continuing operations of the latest 4 quarters, divided by the latest 4 quarters Operating Revenues.
Operating Cash Flow 1Yr  The sum of net profit, depreciation, change in accruals, and change in accounts payable, minus change in accounts receivable, minus change in inventories.
P/E Ratio  The price per share divided by the trailing 12 month's earnings per share. Companies with negative earnings are designated N/A. This well known criterion is a quick and dirty way of evaluating whether a stock is richly priced or reasonably priced. The P/E ratio must, however, always be evaluated in conjunction with growth rate. A high growth rate deserves a high P/E. Generally a low P/E would merit a long position.
P/E Ratio vs. 5YrAverage P/E  This is the current P/E ratio divided by the average of the last five year's P/E ratio. Expressed as a percentage: a value of 80, for instance, would mean that the current P/E is 80% of the five year average. This value shows whether a stock is reasonably priced relative to its own history.
Percent Change Revenue 1Yr  The difference between the revenue from the latest 12 months and the previous 12 months expressed as a percentage.
Percent Change Revenue Last Qtr  The difference between the latest quarter revenue and the revenue for the same quarter one year ago, expressed as a percentage.
Percent Shares Held by Insiders  The percentage of the latest shares outstanding held by insiders of the company.
Price to Sales Ratio  Determined by dividing current stock price by revenue per share (adjusted for stock splits). Revenue per share for the P/S ratio is determined by dividing revenue for past 12 months by number of shares outstanding.
Percent Shares Held by Institutions  The total number of shares held by institutions divided by the total number of shares outstanding.
Sales ($Millions) 1Yr  This is the sum of revenues for the last 4 quarterly reports. This is an excellent gauge of company size.
Revenue Growth Rate Last 4 Qtrs  The difference between the latest fiscal year revenue and the previous fiscal year revenue, expressed as a percentage.
Sales Growth Rate 5Yr  This is the compound annual revenue per share growth over the last 5 years. This is an indication of growing market share (especially in issues with over 15.93% since the average compound inflation rate for five years in the USA is 15.93%). Never forget, it takes revenue to produce earnings.
