Consensus: Stocks That Pass the Most Screens
This month’s First Cut filters for the stocks that passed the greatest number of strategies tracked by AAII. This process is accomplished by examining the results of every screen and identifying stocks passing more than one strategy. As of November 12, 2010, 1,024 stocks passed at least one of the 60 screens tracked by AAII. However, only 25 stocks passed four or more screens, and they are the stocks that made the First Cut this month. Note that some screens such as the growth-oriented O’Neil CANSLIM and the deep-value Graham Enterprising approaches did not have any companies that passed at the time of screening.
The stocks are first ranked by the number of screens passed and then by their price-earnings ratio. The price-earnings ratio (price divided by trailing earnings per share) is a basic valuation gauge. The earnings growth rate measures bottom line performance. Market capitalization (number of shares outstanding times the price) measures firm size. Stock price performance is highlighted with relative price strength ranks over the last 13 weeks and 52 weeks.

While you cannot automatically consider a group of consensus stocks to be a diversified portfolio, they may present a good First Cut for constructing your personal portfolio. Optimally, the group of screening approaches a stock passes is diverse enough to capture unique, yet desirable qualities. Further information on each of the screening strategies can be found at the Stock Screens area of AAII.com.
