How to Use Screener.in "Export to Excel" Tool

Screener.in is one of the best resources available to equity investors in Indian markets. It is a website, which provides the investors with the key information about companies listed on Indian stock exchanges (BSE and NSE).

We have been using screener.in as an integral part of our stock analysis and investments since last many years and have been continuously impressed by the tools offered by it that cut down the hard work of an investor. Some of these features, which are very useful for equity investors are:
  • Filtering of stocks based on multiple objective financial parameters. Investors can share these parameters in the form of “Saved Screens”.
  • Company information page, which collates the critical information about a company on one single page including balance sheet, profit & loss, cash flow, quarterly results, corporate announcements, links to annual reports, credit rating reports, past stock price movement etc. A scroll down on the company page provides an investor most of the critical information, which is needed to make a provisional opinion about any company.
  • Email alerts to investors for new stocks meeting their “Saved Screens”
  • Email alerts to investors on updates about companies in their watchlist.

All these features are good and have proved very beneficial to investors. However, there is one additional feature of screener.in, which we have found unique to screener.in. This feature is “Export to Excel”.

Register for "Peaceful Investing Workshop", Chennai, Sept 10, 2017

One of the key methods to generate significant wealth from stock markets is to buy & hold fundamentally sound stocks over long periods of times extending to years and many times to decades. However, such long investing duration invariably contains periods of exuberance & distress where the market price rises & falls significantly. It leads to strong emotional reactions from investors that make holding stocks for the long term a difficult proposition.

Therefore, the patience to hold stocks in fluctuating markets requires very high level of conviction from the investor in her investing decisions.

“Peaceful Investing” workshop aims to focus on stock selection and analysis skills, which would make us much more confident about our stock decisions. It would ensure that our faith would not shake with day to day market price fluctuations and we would be able to reap true benefits of stock markets to fulfil our dream of financial independence.

The workshop would focus on the fundamental stock analysis of stocks with a detailed analysis of various sources of information available to investors like annual reports, quarterly results, credit rating reports, online financial resources like screener.

The workshop would help an investor learn in-depth analysis of stocks that would help her make her own opinion about the strengths & weaknesses of any stock. The participants would be able to use the stock analysis with their preferred stock selection approach like value investing or growth investing.

The workshop would cover basics of investing and simultaneously focus on key concepts needed for stock analysis both for a beginner and seasoned stock investor. I believe that a person does not need to have an educational background in finance to be a good stock investor and the workshop has been designed keeping it in mind.
