This is a 'fast growers' screen which looks for consistently profitable, relatively unknown, low-debt, reasonably priced stocks with high, but not excessive, growth.

One Up on Wall Street
by Peter Lynch, John Rothchild
Peter Lynch was arguably the most successful mutual fund investor ever. During the thirteen years that Lynch managed the Fidelity Magellan Fund (1977-1990), he racked up average annualized gains of close to +30%; nearly double the S&P 500’s +17.5% annualized performance over the same time period. At the time of Lynch’s retirement in 1990, the Magellan Fund was the largest mutual fund in the world (subsequently passed by Vanguard’s S&P 500 Index Fund.).
