Free stock screeners, when they satisfy the requirements of your investing strategies, can be one of the best deals around. Not only are they free, but they often come with several pre-defined stock screens, free portfolio management tools and represent sites with extensive investment information related to stocks and the financial markets.
Without exception, these are online stock screeners.
The primary consideration, always, is whether or not the screener is adequate for you.
Keep in mind the goal of stock screening is to reduce the time required to locate and analyze suitable investment or trading opportunities. If using a free stock screener creates more work than it saves, it is not a good deal even if it is free.
If you are not familiar with the characteristics of a good stock screener (free or fee-based), take time to familiarize yourself before spending time evaluating a free stock screener. Get the latest Stock Screener Features Checklist.
The availability of free online screeners changes as a business decision of the company hosting the site. To save you time trying to locate a screener that no longer exists, out-of-service screeners are included in the list with a no longer available (NLA) notation. Where additional information about out-of-service screeners is available, a link is provided.
Currently, the list of free stock screening sites includes only screeners offering some fundamental data for screening. Free stock screeners that offer only technical analysis will be added once evaluations for all of the following sites are complete.
If you know of other free screeners please contact us so we can share the information with everyone.
We value your suggestions, comments, and questions.
Our goal is to make this site as useful as possible.
