Screen Test - 20 stocks - BTSP3M - 8/12/00(short)

This is the Thirtieth report of a test of a 20 stock screen based on a spreadsheet that finds those stocks that have beaten the S&P consistently over the last three months. Summaries will be reported weekly, and details monthly as of the last Friday. The screen requires no outside data, except weekly prices of the 100 stocks ranked #1 for timeliness by Value Line, and weekly values of the indices shown. Since the list of those 100 stocks is available at many public libraries, no subscriptions are required.

Here are the screen results for portfolios #1 and #5 for each of the last six weeks. Stocks are shown down through #30, so you can see patterns as stocks migrate up and down the lists. The screen for #5 portfolio continues to pick up thirty stocks or better over the last several weeks (34 this week, more volatility!), while the screen for #1 is running only in the high twenties, due to the stocks that failed to make the cut in the last week.
