Ziggma’s Free Stock Screener: Institutional Quality Research for Individual Investors

It is crucial to employ the best stock research tools in today's fast paced and highly volatile equity markets. With markets prone to rise or fall in value rapidly depending on the latest news, thorough research is more important than ever to selecting individual stocks.

For instance, an investor with a long-term time horizon who has a strong rationale for purchasing a stock is more likely to be able to ride out market fluctuations that might otherwise cause investors to get “whipsawed,” or shaken out of a trade due to volatility rather than any change in the stock’s fundamental picture.

Don’t settle for anything less than the best stock research tools

To find stocks that you can believe in takes the type of in-depth research that has long been difficult for individual investors to perform. Without the ability to rapidly sort through a wide variety of company data and key performance indicators (KPIs), individual investors enter the ring (i.e., the competitive arena that constitutes today’s stock markets) with one hand tied behind their backs.

While in the past the software tools necessary to do this were too expensive for most individual investors to take advantage of, that has changed in recent years, Now, investors can use Ziggma’s stock screener to rapidly search for public companies that meet their investment criteria without having to pay an arm and a leg for the privilege.

With the retirement of the Google stock screener, we believe the detailed search criteria and other features our screener offers makes it, arguably, the best free stock screener around.

Democratizing Investment Research

Powerful stock research tools with the ability to rapidly screen a large number of companies for attractive characteristics are no longer primarily the province of large institutions who can afford to pay hefty subscription fees. Individual investors can now use Ziggma’s stock screener tool to find stocks using criteria similar to those used by the big institutions.

Ziggma’s software is a powerful resource for finding companies that tick off a number of the boxes frequently used by investors to help identify promising opportunities. These include identifying companies that are:

Ziggma’s stock screener enables you to sort from a massive database of listed public companies by these and other criteria. Not only does the comprehensiveness of the tool help democratize investment research by providing individual investors with access to extensive research data, it also features an intuitive interface that makes it easy to rapidly search for the best stocks.
