The freefincal stock screener is now available on Google sheets. It gets data from Value Research and allows the user to screen capitalization-wise and sector-wise.
This post can be considered as a guide for this screener: How to Build a Stock Screener
Altman-Z Score - Higher the score, lower the probability of bankruptcy. This is how VR computes it
Debt to Equity - a measure of debt used by the company to operate. Lower is typically less risky. Less than one, preferred by many.
PEG - The PE ratio divided by annual EPS growth. Less than one, could represent undervalued stock.
Enterprise Multiple EV/EBITDA - Compares EBITA, the earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization with EV, the enterprise value. Low values could mean undervaluation. However, 'low' is sector dependent.
Current PE less than Median PE - Median is the mid-point of a distribution of values (PEs in this case). Maybe used for solid companies (thanks Krishna).
Current PE more than Median PE - Maybe used for small companies which are expanding, provided other checks are in place.
