Stock Screeners: Useful Tools in Finding Undiscovered Micro Caps

Ian Cassel Blog Leave a Comment

From time to time I like to run a stock screen on a few different parameters.  Simple stock screens on yahoo finance (like the one below) are often flawed in some way shape or form, so you still have to go through each individual stock to see if any of the metrics were skewed (ie: net income skewed higher due to non cash gains etc).

I screened for stocks that fit ALL of the following metrics: 

Share Price: $1.00 – 10.00

Market Cap: <$100 million

Dividend Yield:  4 – 10%

Annual Sales Revenue:  > $10 Million

PE:  5 – 20

Share Price and Market Cap are just so we are looking at Micro Caps.  When I included up to $250m market cap, a bunch of Income Trusts were thrown into the results, so I kept it even smaller sub $100 million market caps.  I chose $1-10 share prices and not sub $1.00 so that more of the results would be of listed companies.  Annual sales of greater then $10 million so that we are looking at real businesses.  In a nutshell I’m looking for real micro cap companies that are undervalued by PE that pay a nice dividend.   Yahoo finance screener spit out 25 companies which are shown below.
