Chapter 1. The Analysis Process > Finding Candidates

Finding Candidates

Finding stocks to analyze can be as easy as going to your hair salon, talking to your neighbors, picking up a magazine, surfing the Internet, or turning on the TV. You'll find no shortage of tips, and you'll welcome them once you've gained confidence in your analysis skills, because you'll be able to weed out the bad ideas quickly.

As your experience grows, you'll get a feel for what discriminates strong candidates, and you'll find yourself increasingly taking advantage of screening to uncover investment ideas. Screening is a technique for scanning the entire market for stocks meeting your criteria. It's a powerful tool, but to use it effectively, you have to first understand how to identify the best candidates. That will come with time, and in the meantime, I've provided a few sample screens in Chapter 3 to get you started.
