Morning Star

Screen Shot 2015-08-13 at 9.44.28 pmThe Morning Star screener is a little less feature packed than some of the other screeners, this is largely due to there being a paid version also. In spite of being unable to access analyst recommendations though, the Morning Star screener is still a solid platform to start your screening on.
