A search would have found the information pretty quickly. I just did and found:

Thanx for the help - actually i did a search but couldnt find the proper way to do it. How do you exclude a sector?

Use the below filter to omit the undesired sectors or industries. Change "SERVICES" for any other sector you wish to omit from your search. For industries, just change the wording from "sector" to "industries" accordingly.

Fetcher[
set{Nonsector, count(SECTOR is SERVICES,1)}
set{Anything_But, 1 - Nonsector}
Anything_But is above 0
add column sector
]

Hello,

When I use the following setup I get Energy stocks as well as Service and Technology. Why?
Do I have a misunderstanding in the "or" Boolean Logic theory? (as posted by TheRumpledOne--Thanks for posting this TRO)

Thanks


set{A, count(SECTOR is SERVICES,1)}
set{b, count(SECTOR is Technology,1)}
set{OR1, A + B}
show stocks where OR1 is above 0
add column sector

The Rumpie filter is meant to INCLUDE the "services" and "technology" sectors. Mine was written to exclude them (eg. set{Anything_But, 1 - Nonsector}). If you add "set{Anything_But, 1 - OR1}" to Rumpie's filter, you'll get the same result:

Fetcher[
set{A, count(SECTOR is SERVICES,1)}
set{b, count(SECTOR is Technology,1)}
set{OR1, A + B}
set{Anything_But, 1 - OR1} /* <-- HERE*/
show stocks where Anything_But is above 0
add column sector
]

Just in case you're not aware of the specifics, what I've done was to initially find services and technology stocks that met the search criteria. Then I subtracted those number of stocks from the rest of the stock universe. Hence, what you're left is "anything but" those two sectors.

Thanks nikoschopen. I understood (I think) the logic of your filter. What I was trying to do was just get the stocks in the "services" and "technology" sectors only. My filter also returns "energy" sector stocks. Why?

nikoschopen,
How would you write your filter to get only "services" and "technology" sectors only?

Thanks. Following you filter has been a good learning experience. Thanks for posting

JB
