Out of the several hundred stocks listed in SGX, how do you choose which one to buy? Use value investing to find the undervalued stocks? Find stocks with huge growth potential? Find income stocks that would give high and stable dividends for many years to come? Or...?

Everyone has their own school of thought (e.g. Value investing, Growth investing, Income investing, etc) for choosing what stock to buy. And of course, different schools of thought would use different metrics to find that best stock.

Value investors would use ratios such as low price-to-earnings (P/E) and price-to-book (P/B) to find undervalued stocks; growth investors would try to find stocks that are growing faster than the market using metrics such as P/E-to-Growth (PEG) and Return on Capital, while income investors would be more interested in dividend yield and stable prices historically (e.g. low value at risk). And, even within the same school of thought, people are likely to focus on slightly different metrics to find his/her best stock to buy.

I am happy to share that iScreener is now available again after the data switch. Together with it is a comparator that allows you to compare up to six different stocks side by side.

You can now use these tools in SGXcafe to rank or compare stocks based on metrics that matter to you easily. I have created three profiles for reference, namely John Neff, Growth Profile, and Value Profile. By the way, all profiles you create will only be seen by you but since many users in SGXcafe are generous and enjoy sharing (as can be seen by the many shared portfolios), I might add the ability to share your created profile in future. Let me know if you are really keen on this sharing function.

Happy investing!

p.s.: You can now also see iScreener profiles in companies' summary pages (e.g. DBS). And if you create your own profiles, the default profiles will be replaced by yours accordingly.

Analyze and Compare Stocks (using SGXcafe)

Growing Dividends - Does Debt-to-equity Ratio and Operating Cashflow Matter? (Part 2)
