Market Scan Examples

The first step in selecting stocks that fit the criteria for my investment plan, as set out in detail in Building Wealth in the Stock Market, is to scan the market. There are two ways in which I scan the market. One uses technical analysis and the other uses fundamental ratios.

From time to time, I will publish examples from both types of market scan on this page in PDF files with screenshots. These market scan examples are intended as educational tools, which attempt to teach investing skills by example.

All of my remarks in these market scan examples are solely in relation to my investment plan, as set out in Building Wealth in the Stock Market, unless I state otherwise. Readers should see my remarks in this light and not assume that the strategy that is appropriate for me is also automatically appropriate for them. This is because readers will/should have a different investment plan and must take strategy decisions in accordance with their own plan, not with mine.

My investment plan was earlier set out in The Aggressive Investor. There are some changes in Building Wealth in the Stock Market, which may or may not be relevant to individual readers. I reserve the right to change my plan at any time, but should I do so, I will say so on the website.
