Investment approaches are often classified as either "value-based" or "growth-based" strategies that focus on fundamental company characteristics. But not all approaches fit easily into these definitions.

William J. O'Neil devised one interesting approach that combines both fundamental and technical factors.

O'Neil began his career on Wall Street and eventually founded an investment research firm, William O'Neil & Co., which publishes, among other things, Daily Graphs (a daily chart service), and Investor's Business Daily (a daily financial newspaper). The latter publication was started in 1983 and was designed by O'Neil to provide more investment information than was contained in the current daily financial newspapers. As a result, Investor's Business Daily includes information that pertains to his investment approach in its daily stock price tables.

O'Neil discusses his approach in "How to Make Money in Stocks: A Winning System in Good Times and Bad" (published by McGraw-Hill; $10.95), which is now in its second edition. This book serves as the primary source for this screen.
