Samurai stock score is a unique measurement we build to help you judge the fundamental strength of a stock. The calculation is done based on fundamental data and is designed to find robust stocks in seconds. It is a proprietary scoring system that ranges from 1 (weakest) to 10 (strongest) and combines 2 factors:

  1. Fundamental strength - we measure this via ratios of the company such as PE ratio, debt to equity, historical growth, cash flow, and more. A higher score is better.
  2. EPS growth - EPS growth rate (including analysts projections) measuring how fast the company is growing + analysts' growth projection. A higher score is better.

 We then average the 2 factors to get a combined score, when higher is better.

We suggest adding it as a filter to all of your scans to help you arrive to a better decision
