How to find high quality VALUE stocks?

In this video, I use the stock screener to arrive at a basic list of high-quality value stocks of interest to value investors.

Stock Screener Settings

Debt/Equity<=1.4

Debt / equity is used to determine the level of debt of a company. The total debt is compared with equity to understand the extent to which debt is used as a leverage to finance a company. Too much debt constitutes a risk in more volatile times if a company can no longer meet its obligations.

EPS 5Y>=5%

If profits can be increased over several years, it is a good indication that it is a safe company which reduces your risk.

Exchange: US Only

Only US stocks

PE<=17

The lower the Price to Earnings ratio, the cheaper the company and the more likely it is that the company in question is undervalued.

Current Ratio>=1.6

The current ratio measures the extent to which a company is able to meet its short-term financial obligations that fall due within one year (current liabilities)?

Dividend Yield>=1%

Companies that pay dividends will generally be considered to be on a more stable growth path.

EPS Next Y>=5%

The same percentage is used as an outlook for the next year.
