Stock screeners take much of the weight off the trader’s plate, allowing you to quickly search for a stock based on criteria you’ve defined, like market capitalization (in other words, the value and size of the company), dividend yield, industry or share price.
Most of the trading platforms offered by online brokers include a screener (and some brokers also have screeners for exchange-traded funds, mutual funds or options). But many advanced traders recommend Finviz, which has really in-depth screening capabilities that can help you dial down to trade opportunities. The site also offers charts, U.S. and international market maps and quotes. The basic services are free, but Finviz offers an elite subscription that starts at just under $25 a month.
