Investing in Proven Growth Using CAN SLIM Revised
The “original” CAN SLIM approach of William O’Neil is based on O’Neil’s analysis of 500 of the biggest stock market winners from 1953 to 1993. The CAN SLIM approach presented in O’Neil’s book, “How to Make Money in Stocks,” was based upon the characteristics that these winning stocks possessed prior to their big price run-ups.
However, O’Neil extended his analysis of past market winners to 600 companies that performed strongly from 1953 to 2001 and revised a number of CAN SLIM criteria. In 2002, O’Neil released his new findings in the third edition of “How to Make Money in Stocks” and this article focuses on our stock screen that is based on this revised approach.
