Each week we'll use a variety of stock screening approaches to come up with a list of stocks which fit the criteria of this week’s stock screener, then John & Justin will pick a stock from the list, explain what they like about it. This week we are filtering using the Piotroski Score
The Piotroski score is a discrete score between zero and nine that reflects nine criteria used to determine the strength of a firm's financial position. The Piotroski score is used to determine the best value stocks, with nine being the best and zero being the worst.
The Piotroski score was named after Chicago Accounting Professor Joseph Piotroski, who devised the scale, according to specific aspects of company financial statements.

The points are then added up to determine the best value stocks. John's Pick is:
