Stock screening

Clients use stock screens to find high quality investment opportunities and to ensure that current holdings continue to meet required criteria. Filter for value, income, safety, growth, momentum and technical characteristics.

  • You can filter Alpha's lists of equities or collectives down to sector level.
  • For collectives, filter for criteria such as performance over multiple time frames, costs, yield, and, for investment trusts, premium/discount to NAV.
  • For equities, use a wide range of financial data items and ratios to find companies that meet value, growth, quality and safety criteria e.g. well-covered income stocks or undervalued small cap growth stocks.
  • Include chart-based criteria to discover investments with momentum or showing overbought/oversold characteristics.

The example stock screen below identifies UK equity income investment trusts which have increased their dividend for at least 10 years running, have a yield above 3% and have reasonable valuations.
