Would you care to remind us what VGHorse screens for?

The last time I used VG-Horse was in 2016, but the steps are roughly:

1. Industry not equal to "Financial"
2. YoY EPS must be positive
3. YoY sales must be positive
4. Price/Free Cash Flow per share <= 20
5. Institutional Ownership <= 70%
6. Market cap >= $100M
8. Price >= $8
9. Positive 6-month return
10. Avg daily volume >= 30K
11. Calculate VR = ((6-month return)/(Avg monthly volume))*(Avg daily volume*21)/(Avg monthly volume)
12. Sort descending by VR, keeping the top 10

You can get the Radiscript for VG-Horse and other MI screens from lohill's gtr1 data helper program.

Keep :[SI Sector]<>"07-Financial"
Keep :[SI EPS Q1]>[SI EPS Q5]
Keep :[SI Sales Q1]>[SI Sales Q5]
Keep :[SI Price/FCFPS]<=20
Keep :[SI Float]<20
Keep :[SI Institutional Ownership %]<=70
Keep :[SI Market Cap Q1]>=100
Keep :[SI Price]>=8
Keep :[SI Price Change 26 week]>0
Keep :[SI Volume--Average Daily 10d]>=30
Create [VR] :21*[SI Volume--Average Daily 10d]/[SI Volume--Average Monthly 3m]
Create [SORT] :([SI Price Change 26 week]/[SI Volume--Average Monthly 3m])*[VR]
Sort Descending [SORT]
Top :10
