High Earnings Growth Screen for Grox01

In a comment from my previous post, Grox01 asked that I run a screen for fast earnings growers > 20% over the next five years.  This, of course, yields many companies, so I added some additional screening metrics:


  • 30% eps growth forecast for 5 years
  • PE of 15 or less
  • Beta of less than 2.0
  • Stock price of at least $5
  • Dividend of at least 2% (what can I say, I love dividends)
Here are the results:


The list is worth some additional due diligence.  Grox01, please let us know what you learn!

Best,

Chump

  1. Hi Chump,

    Thank you for the effort, but I only see 5 names on the list and that is not exactly what I had in mind.

    I am looking for a list of stocks that have a 5 yr. est. tot. return of between 15% and 25%. My thinking is that this range will deliver relative great risk/return ratio. They don't have to pay a dividend, must be over say 10$ a share, have consistency in growth so say minimum 5% growth per year in eps or better.

    I have the feeling you can't get the search on FG just by the 5 yr est. tot, return, but when you get the list... can you sort them by it and then select to print here only the range of those having a 15% to 25% expected growth?

    1. Grox, when I run the screen you suggest, I get 5,437 companies, all with expected 5 year earnings growth in the range you suggest. You might want to add a few more qualifiers to narrow the list.

      Best,

      Chump

  2. ok, what about 8% eps minimum for the last 5 years and 15% minimum for the next 5 years?

  3. Okay, that lowers it to 347 firms. Here are the top 200 in order of estimated 5 year return:
