To DrBob2 , Bill2m , or Jamie Gritton, or anyone else with insight,
I am thinking of using the “Up_5%” screen and have been reviewing the backtest data on the Jamie Gritton’s Backtest URL .
When I run the backtest, the stocks his backtest site picked on the first week of each month do not seem to match the same stocks you report in your weekly published stocks for the same screen.
For example, in recent months, on Bill2m's weekly published picks for this screen,
On Nov 4, SI Rankings published Stocks IEG, PZN, FCBC, TREE, and OPBK.
Where Jamie's back test reports using on Nov 5 stocks DAVA, SNBR, FIX, FRGI and PMM for its first five picks.
For December, SI Rankings published GTN, FN, MTLS, STRL, FBR on Dec 1 , whereas Jamies backtest used GTN, FOXF, FN, CASY, and AMEH for its first five stocks in the backtest.

I was wondering what the explanation might be for the different stocks selected using the same Screening criteria. Are Jamies backtest done on different database?

Thanks for any insight that can be provided.
