Value

Is the stock fairly, under or over-valued? How does the Price to Earnings ratio compare with the industry? How does the company's Enterprise Value to Sales ratio compare to the industry average? Are the company's profits less than, in line or above the industry average?

Growth

This is a measure of profit growth projection. Data from professional analysts is collated, and compared with the company's historical growth rate. Future projected returns are also scored. 

Past

This looks at previous years' performance of the company's profits, and is a score based on a comparison of the last year to the industry average as well as its own 5-year numbers. Other key indicators such as Operating Margins, Return On Assets and Return On Capital Employed are also compared to the industry average. 

Quality

Cashflow checks. Are cash and short term assets good enough to cover liabilities? Also looks at the Debt To Equity ratio and interest costs relative to earnings. Is the cash flow positive? How likely is bankruptcy?

Income

Dividend checks. How good is a company at returning income to shareholders? Is the dividend yield one of the top 100 companies in that market? For how many years has the company been paying a dividend for? How has the dividend amount increased? How sustainable are the payouts?
