Whenever a Sector story becomes prevalent in a market due to micros or macros we are at our wit’s end thinking as to what to buy and why.

Suppose the Paper sector is moving and you want to know the best company in the sector which can make money for you.
So for this, we have a Sector feature in StockEdge under which you can make your own scan and choose the best company among the same sector or Industry for your investment bet. This is known as choosing between peers.
Comparing peers is an easy and efficient way to discover the best stock in a particular industry, for your portfolio.
Now you must be pondering as to how to identify the best among peers. This sounds tiring and cumbersome at the same time. Don’t worry, StockEdge has a solution to this.
By using the My Combination Scan under the My StockEdge feature you can filter out the potential peer companies and conduct a comparative analysis to determine the best investment option.
My Combination Scan
A Premium Member can create his own scan by using a combination of various scans available under the six broad scan parameters. However, you need to keep in mind that only 10 scans under the parameters can be incorporated in a single combination scan. This way you can create multiple scans for different sectors based on various other criteria.
How do you create My Combination Scan?
To begin with, first, click on My Combination Scan under My StockEdge and then click on Add Combination Scan. There you name the scan, according to your preference and click on Add.
Once done, click on the name and you will get this blank page, with a plus sign on the right corner. Now, click on the plus sign to add scans available under the six broad scan parameters.
As we are discussing peer comparison, so preferably you need to choose your scans from the Fundamental scans segment and Price scans segment.
For example, here we have chosen four scans, belonging to the above two segments, which are:
- Closing Above Previous High
- Quarterly Net profit Growth YoY
- Increasing Quarterly Sales (Results)
- Consistently Paying Dividend
Filtering Peer Companies
Once the preferred scans are added, by clicking on ‘Stocks’ you get the list of all stocks that conform to the set scan criteria.
See also: Narrow Range Scans (NR)
Then you have to simply filter these conforming stocks using the ‘By Sector’ filter. Once you have selected your preferred sector then select the preferred industry within the sector using the ‘By Industries’ option.
This gives you the list of peer group stocks, using which you can easily conduct peer comparison analysis to determine the best investment option.
You can also choose the other filters here to limit the stocks in the scan according to other criteria like market cap, price, etc to filter stocks.
