The strategy looks for stocks that have strong and consistent revenue and earnings and are trading below intrinsic value based on discounted free cash flow and discounted earnings.

The Buffett-Munger Screener follows the Berkshire co-manager’s four-criterion investing approach: high business predictability, strong gross margins, low debt-to-revenue growth and low price-earnings-to-growth valuations.

Likewise, the Historical Low Price-Book and Historical Low Price-Sales Screeners looks for predictable companies that are trading at historical low price-book or historical low price-sales ratios.
