We recently introduced the ability to screen for stocks based on their P/E ratio if available. To take advantage of this screen, try some of the phrases below:

Fetcher[MA(10) crossed above MA(50) within the last 2 days and PE Ratio below 20]


Fetcher[High is above the upper bollinger band(20) and PE Ratio is above 50]

Awesome!!!! You need to add more fundamental ratios such as quick ratio's current assets/current liability ( great to measure a Co.'s short term obligations) Debt/Equity ratio (measures if a Co.' is carrying to much debt) ex: You could short these stocks if the economy gets worse and the Co.'s with high D/E ratios are finding it very difficult to meet their debt obligations etc. . Keep up the good work!!!

The data from screening by PE Ratio is so wrong it is not usable. I find the same is true for Dividend data too. Here is an example of in accurate data:

Fetcher[
MA(10) crossed above MA(50) within the last 2 days
and PE Ratio below 1
and PE Ratio is above 0

and add column PE Ratio

]



Example results right now when I wrote this post:

CLNT SF: 0.83 Actual: 55.00
AMBC SF: 0.65 Actual: 13.08

The P/E Ratio on StockFetcher uses price / trailing 12 months of EPS before non-recurring items.

Concerning the two examples that you mention, can you provide more details concerning the EPS numbers you are using to arrive at the cited ratios? We only ask as we are having trouble finding any matching sources to what you mention.

Please keep in mind that the price used for StockFetcher's P/E is not based on current, intraday, pricing.

Thank you,
StockFetcher Support

I was comparing the data to othere sites like Yahoo Finance which displays PE(ttm) too I thought.

Any additional details you can provide would be great, as we have not been able to locate/verify the numbers that you mention.

Thank you,
StockFetcher Support
