3 Best Stock Screeners For Indian Stocks That You Should Know:
There are over 5,500 companies listed on Indian stock market. While investigating for good companies to invest, if you start reading the financials of each and every single stock, then it might take years.
Moreover, it doesn’t make sense to read the balance sheet, profit & loss statements or cash-flow statements of all the listed companies, if you can filter them out based on just a few preliminary filters like debt or growth rate.
And that why stock screeners can be a very useful tool for the investors (and traders) to reduce lots of hassle.
In this post, we are going to discuss 3 best stock screeners that every Indian stock investors should know.
What is a Stock Screener?
A stock screener is a tool to shortlist few companies from a pool of all the listed companies on a stock exchange using filters. The investors specify the filters and the stock screener gives the results accordingly.
For example, if you want to find a list of companies whose
- Market capitalization is greater than 10,000 Cr
- Price to earnings is between 10 to 25.
- Last 3 years average return on equity is 20%
- And debt to equity ratio is less than 1
Then, you can apply all these filters in a stock screener to get the list of the companies which fulfills the above criteria.
Stock screeners are very useful as it can save you a lot of time. You do not need to go through all the listed companies to shortlist few good ones. You can just apply the basic filter to get the list of few good ones that you want to investigate further.
Overall, the stock screener will help you to find good performing stocks according to your specifications with a single click.
