RRSP season is in full swing and you may be trying to decide where to put this year's contribution.
To help out in the selection process, Globe Unlimited subscribers can generate many investing ideas by using our new stock screener.
We recently added this tool to give subscribers a simple, intuitive and customizable way to sift through thousands of stocks to find a shortlist of the best candidates to suit a specific investing style. It may be something you wish to bookmark.
Professional money managers use these to screen stocks according to certain criteria -- such as earnings growth, dividends, cash flow, valuation and margins. Now, you can as well.
You can either pick from four preset stock screens that our Globe Investor columnists have developed. This is where you can find the same criteria that Warren Buffett uses (our Value Investing screen), or figure out the best stocks for a steady flow of income (Dividend Investing), or look for potentially high-growth stocks (Growth Investing), or our Growth at a Reasonable Price screen. You can also adjust the criteria to suit your needs.
Or, if you know what you'd like in an investment and don't see it already, you can build your own screen from scratch. Simply click on Full Criteria list, or start typing in what you're looking for in the Add Criteria box.
The screener will provide you with a list in alphabetical order. You can then re-order the list according to any criteria you prefer by clicking on the down arrow next to the parameter's name.
