shelupinin,

you asked...

"alf44, could you explain what does "and Shares Outstanding is less than 25" mean? thanks"

--------------------

SF has a way of filtering stocks based on the number of Shares Outstanding.

"Shares Outstanding"...is the number of shares of a corporation's stock that have been issued and are in the hands of the public (but not neccesarily available for trading).

The "Float"...on the other hand, is the number of shares of a security that are both outstanding AND available for trading by the public on an Exchange.

I would prefer to use "float" but SF does not provide us with a way to screen for that...so I sometimes use the "Shares Outstanding" measure. The thought being that...fewer shares outstanding (ie. supply) will require only a moderate amount of buying (ie. demand) to move prices higher. It's a basic Supply and Demand thing.

As for SF...their Shares Outstanding criteria is represented in Millions of shares.

That is:

"Shares Outstanding is 25"...would return 25 Million

"Shares Outstanding is 100"...would return 100 Million

"Shares Outstanding is 1000"...would return 1000 Million (which is 1 Billion)

---------------------

And now you know. Hope that helped.

It is just the opposite alf44. You said:

You got the two mixed up. See the following for clarification:

Jeeez !

Not again !

jake...with all due respect...(why does this opening line sound familiar LOL)...

It's NOT "just the opposite"...it is EXACTLY as I described it !

My definitions are absolutely correct ! Nothing in that Fool.com article "answer" contradicts the definition(s) I gave.


Look here:

Outstanding Shares -

Stock currently held by investors, including restricted shares owned by the company's officers and insiders as well as those held by the public. Shares that have been repurchased by the company are not considered outstanding stock. They are also known as "issued shares" or "issued and outstanding".

http://www.investopedia.com/terms/o/outstandingshares.asp

---------

Float -

The total number of shares publicly owned and available for trading. The float is calculated by subtracting restricted shares from outstanding shares.

http://www.investopedia.com/terms/f/float.asp

----------

These defs are even more detailed than those I gave but ,in effect, say the same thing that I said.

Do you not agree ?
