Nano Cap Magic Formula Ideas

Joel Greenblatt produces a list of magic formula stocks on his free web site;


based on his popular work “The Little Book That Beats the Market”.

As most of you know, he’s looking for good companies selling at cheap prices. Companies with a high ROIC are good companies and a high earnings yield measure cheapness. The combination of ROIC and Earnings yield (EBIT/EV) are ranked and averaged together. The highest ranking stocks are hopefully the most desirable.

Not a perfect search but may contain some useful nano cap ideas;

The search was further restricted by market capitalization; only companies below 50 million, reporting year over year quarterly revenue increase, share count reduction or relatively flat based on the average prior 3 year count versus the TTM share count.

These 4 introductions have already seen large price movement over their 52 week low.

Thanks for stopping by my site. And thanks for the consistently high caliber of information you post here. While I have also pursued a value approach, I have found my choices this year have been mixed. I have been playing with some mechanical investing based on Piotroski F score etc. in my 80-20. Good results limited options, and general NCAV stocks have not faired as well.
