Hi all, let's use this board to ferret through the dumpster and uncover some beaten-down stocks with the goods to once again stand tall. After all, one fool's trash may be another Fool's treasure.I've used the TMF CAPS screener tool to uncover a list of beaten-down stocks that we can discuss and analyze together. I will quickly run down the criteria I used for the screen, why I chose each one, and the results. From there, let's see where this goes! I have my eye on three in particular that warrant some additional research. I plan on digging in over the next few days and weeks and reporting my findings and analysis on this board. Here goes...THE SCREENING PARAMETERS1. % above 52-week low: <20% -- we want the knife to have fallen far before we stick our hands out2. Wall Street picks: fewer than 5 -- we want the unloved and unwanted, that way we can get a research edge3. % inside ownership: 5% to 40% -- chances are there are troubles and challenges present, so having management with skin in the game is reassuring4. P/B ratio: < 1.5 -- if there is trouble, we want to see that there are some assets around if things get worse (dum, dum, dummmmmm)5. Current price: >$5 -- we hope to avoid butting up against penny stocks6. CAPS rating: 4 or 5 -- face the music: the CAPS community is smart, lets piggy-back a littleMake some recommendations to tweak these parameters, add or delete, or scrap it all together. For now, it will provide some ideas for us to get going. Without further ado...THE LUCKY 13CBIZ, HUVL, IDI, LABL, NAVG, NHC, PIKE, POWL, SCMR, SUSS, SWS, TWGP, UVSPLet's run with this and when it dies out I will post another list of companies trading near their 52-week lows.
