Going back to the article - there's a hold-to-drop component of that screen that Rayvt didn't appear to pass on.

1. I used EPS Est Q1-Std. dev. which is in dollars. This would penalize high price stocks, I should have used
ratio(epssdeq1.s,aprc). This improves CAGR to 6.25.

2. rrs is almost always a better measure of momentum. Replacing tr with rrs helps.
Replace tr(1,252) with rrs(1,252) and holding period to 3 mo. improves the CAGR to 8.69

3. If this is based changes in earnings estimates and not actual announcements wouldn’t making a buy decision a few weeks before the announcements help? I started to make a pass at this but don’t have time now.

I’m still not convinced this is a viable approach for a screen.
