Following Ed Croft's post "StockRanks return over 100% in 4 years... how have you got on?" on 15 February, I noticed a few comments which asked investors who use the Stock Ranks, to publish their screens and rationale. Therefore, I want to share my own Stock Rank screen with the investing community here at Stockopedia.Value & Momentum, which has been described as the “Holy Grail”…
