Stock Screener

Stock Screener

A computer program that filters stocks according to criteria listed by an investor. For example, if an investor is only interested in buying clean energy stocks with a certain PEG ratio listed in European markets, he/she may enter these requirements into a stock screener and save himself/herself the time of looking up the stocks individually.
