How do I build a custom screen?

1. To create a new screen click on the New Screen tab on the top of the screener.

2. On the left side of the screener, there are a number of category headings. Select a category and the data items on the right will change based on the category.

For instance, if you choose "Zacks Rank and Recommendations" as a category, you will see the right side of the page change to show all items that fall under "Zacks Rank and Recommendations".

3. Now let's say that the first item you would like to screen for is stocks that have a current Zacks Rank of a #1. First, choose "Zacks Rank and Recommendations" under the 'Select a Category' section. You will see 'Zacks Rank' in the left 'Select Items' tab. To the right of Zacks Rank is a dropdown menu for operator selection. Select "=" operator. To the right of operator dropdown is a dropdown with acceptable values for Zacks Rank. Select "1" from the dropdown menu. Then click 'Add'. See Below:

4. Point 4. You will see 'My Criteria' section appear on the screen. The 'Matches' in My Criteria provides number of tickers satisfying your search criteria. For Zacks #1 the number will be around 220-250.

5. You can refine your search and narrow the number of matches by adding new criteria.

6. You can see that by selecting different criteria, we were able to go from over 226 stocks down to just a few..

How do I see additional data items after running the screen?

1. After running the screen, you will have the option to choose additional data items that you may want to view for the stocks in result screen.

2. To add additional data items, click on the "Edit View" tab. Choose your additional data items and then click the "Run Screen" tab. Keep in mind, the original data items you used in your criteria will all be added to your Result automatically.
