    Investment Tool: Stock Screener

    Dear Santa,

    I was told to write this to you and ask for a Christmas Gift.

    I don't want anything. But may be you can share with me what seems to be one of the (pro) investors best kept secret:

    If I don't have a Bloomberg terminal on hand, where can I get a free or cheap stock screener for markets outside USA?

    For USA, I can use Google, MSN, Yahoo... But I did not find similar tools for European or Asian markets.

    The tool I need should be in English (or French) and include criteria like P/E and/or PEG, ROA and/or ROE, dividends and debt.

    If you are too busy packing gifts for kids may be somebody on Geo can share some wisdom...

    Thanks a bunch.

    If you use HSBC to bank with online, they provide free market data for most indicies in Asia and Europe.

    Bloomberg offers this service w/o needing to buy the terminal. It's a little bit of a pain because you need to enter the specific index but once you do, plenty of data is readily available.

    An example would be Toyota
    Bloomberg.com: Personal Finance

    Need to enter 7203:JP to get there.

    I've been using it to screen for Singapore, Swiss, European.

    Good luck

    Same for Yahoo etc ... provide a fair bit of data if you know the codes.

    0005.HK: Summary for HSBC HOLDINGS- Yahoo! Finance


    http://finance.yahoo.com/q/ta?s=0005.HK

    Am I missing something?

    Same for google finance you can have almost all the stock you want with some data. Only problem for those like Yahoo, google ... the HKG stock are 20 mins delayed.

    Guys, I believe the OP is asking for something different - actually pretty much the opposite of what you have been suggesting. I think s/he want a tool/service that allows one to specify certain parameters (e.g., PER or dividend yield above/below a certain level) and returns all the securities matching these criteria. The Bloomberg service on the terminals (and on the full subscription application on PCs) has this functionality.

    Ok, I thought chris86 knew what it was... and clearly the freebie yahoo thing is better than the freebie bloomberg thing, so pointed it out.

    I'll shut up now.

    Thanks for your input everyone.

    What I was trying to say is some web site like google finance where I can select things like:

    P/E ratio Min 1 Max 25

    Div yield (%) Min 3%

    Return on assets (Recent yr) (%) Min 10%

    Return on equity (Recent yr) (%) Min 20%

    Net profit margin (%) Min 10%

    Last price Min $5 Max $99

    EPS Min $1

    Once I click search I get a list of stock I can look at.
    This type of tool only give you stock listed in USA (NYSE, AMEX, NASDAQ). I don't have enough time to read all the annual reports published outside USA.
