Why this screener?
There are numerous stock screeners out there, but I haven't found a single one that identifies growth stocks at reasonable price (GARP or GAARP stocks) well. Most screeners usually deal only with average growth rates or last quarter/year growth which is not enough to determine truly growing companies. So I made one that I'm using to screen for growth stocks (at a reasonable price), and I hope you'll find it useful also.

Here are top reasons for using this screener:
Visualize 12 growth metrics
Easily spot companies with quarterly and annual growth in prior, current and next (estimated) quarter/year - both for EPS and revenue. Look for as many green bars as possible.
Select your growth criteria
Filter companies based on EPS and revenue growth strength. More growth requirements usually means fewer companies and higher valuations.
Find growth stocks at a reasonable price
You've found great growth stocks, but what about their prices? Set your P/E boundaries and limit the results to reasonably priced stocks - GARP stocks.

Detect possibly misleading P/E and EPS
Occasional extraordinary profit/loss makes company look better/worse than it really is. This screener displays a warning icon in such cases (when regular and normalized EPS differ significantly).
