There is no such website where you can find good bargain and value stocks! You could use screeners to identify such stocks but there is no guarantee that it will be a good investment.

From you post I am a bit unclear on whether you are looking to value invest or trade these stocks?

I would suggest devising a plan where you outline your clear objectives and how you intend to meet those objectives. State what your strategy will be and if it value investing then how you intend to execute your strategy to meet your objectives. 

Have you read 'The Intelligent Investor' by Benjamin Graham? If not then you may want to consider it. 

You could look at:

  • Total debt to current asset ratios
  • Current ratio (current assets divided by current liablities)
  • Price to earnings per share - PE ratios
  • Price to book value - P/BV ratios
  • Companies paying dividends

This hopefully will start you thinking but the more work you put in now and the more research you conduct yourself the better chance you will give yourself of building a strong foundation of knowledge to work from.

Hi @Pjoshi, I would be wary of sites that simply pump certain stocks, there is often an ulterior motive. 

Good advice from @TrendFollower though there are sites that do screen for stocks that have been oversold and might be considered a bargain but you would have to weed out those that were oversold for good reason. 

Have a look at these two sites, they look to be free to register for lists of companies that have popped up on various screeners and check through TF's list above to see if they really are a bargain, I would experiment on demo for a while before thinking of risking any real money.

Also check out @rimmy2000 post on using the IG screener.

Let us know how you get on.

I also really like stockopedia.com altho there is a price tag with it. 

If I’m honest I don’t know why IG don’t go down an acquisition route for something like that.

    • With the breakout of GBPUSD (would like to see a daily close above support there and ideally a breakout through the daily channel line) and EURUSD making up its mind about whether to breakout or not I look at the third pair in the Triad for clues.  My thesis is that when both of these markets rally it will be on USD weakness rather than intrinsic strength in either one BUT as GBP has been more depressed of later and with so much negativity around about GBP vs EUR the spring back relief rally will be stronger on GBP.  If right we should see EURGBP turn and drop fast and hard and continue to do so for at least as long as the primary pairs rally lasts. And that is what we have seen so far with what looks like an exhaustion overshoot of my daily chart channel line and drop back inside.  A drop away from this area is confirmatory of an exhaustion spike, and that is what we got.  There followed a small 1-2 retrace, relief rally, which retested the channel line but failed to break back though, and another small 1-2 before a short term channel (1H chart) break and failed retest and then we were off to the races. Recently there has been a consolidation in what could be a small pennant of another 1-2, probably the latter and then a fast break down from this formation to where we are now, testing the lower daily chart channel.  If I am right about a period of USD weakness then I would expect EUR to join the party soon and so we may see a relief rally off the daily channel lower line before a confirmed break. Worth watching the Triad to see how things progress over the coming days and during the Jackson hole panto.
