This article discusses fundamental criteria shared by stocks that double.

 

For the last year, I have been working on my fifth book (pictured above). Part of it covers fundamental analysis, or picking stocks based on value. I just finished a chapter on stocks that double in price within five years and I thought I'd share the results with you. I used data from 1992 to 2007 on almost 1,000 stocks, but not all stocks covered the entire span. Fundamentals were provided by Value Line.

Here is the list of common elements.

I picked the items I liked and did a scan for those fundamentals and found 31 stocks. Here's what I looked for:

Preliminary testing showed the criteria performed well. I would add a test for reduced capital spending since that helped boost performance.

After looking at the stocks that this criteria found, I can see why they are priced so cheaply. Most of them are trash, but you can do your own scans and see what you can find.
