We assign numerous readings from the book in the Applied Equity Markets Research (AEMR) class and highly recommend it.

Screening for Ideas

Using Factset

In an earlier post (Investment Philosophy Matters When Generating Ideas) we highlighted that growth and value investors typically look at different things when identifying new ideas. Growth investors tend to focus on growth in sales and earnings, while value investors focus on price relative to something that proxies for the value of the company like assets, earnings, or cash flows. Professional investors generate ideas in many ways, but one common approach is to use screens that filter a large universe of stocks for the ones with characteristics the investors think likely to yield attractive investments - consistent with their philosophy. Factset has a powerful screening tool you can use to identify your own ideas.
