William O'Neil CAN-SLIM-esque screen 1 Qualifying in UK

This unofficial screen is inspired by the writings of William O'Neil - founder of Investors Business Daily. It uses a 7 pronged formula that finds stocks with fast earnings growth and share price momentum.  Studies by AAII in the USA have proven similar rules to be one of the most successful methods over the last decade. The so called 'CANSLIM' acronym is a registered trademark of Investors Business Daily, and the approach has become famous and well followed. The mnemonic stands for the first letter of each of the following: Current Earnings - current interim earnings strongly accelerating vs the prior year; Annual Earnings - annual earnings increases in recent years; New Highs, New Products, New Management - some kind of catalyst; Supply & Demand - small supply of shares and strong demand for the company's stock; Leaders over Laggards -  choose the best companies in each sector; Institutional Support - but avoid stocks that are over-owned; Market - only buy when the broad market is in a bull phase.
