Hi Brian,

ROIC is actually calculated as Net Operating Profit After Tax (NOPAT) / Invested Capital. NOPAT = EBIT * (1 - Tax Rate). PHM's Tax Rate in the TTM was 39.6%, so multiply that out, and you get the 8.4%.

Hope that helps.


Could be very useful. Thank you for the suggestion. I just don't think this fits into our roadmap currently.

Hi Brian,

Unfortunately, AMZN doesn't list an R&D expense in its financial statements. Here's a link to their latest 10-K:

You can see that they list a "Technology and content" expense on their income statement, and one of their notes mentions that this includes their company-sponsored R&D expense, but it would be impossible to know what is R&D and what is content, among other things. Like Netflix, I'm sure they're spending a lot on content. There's no way for us to systematically know what's R&D, content, or other technology. However, those expenses are included in our other operating expense lines, and thus would be deducted from EBITDA and EBIT. Unless you're adding back R&D for some reason, this shouldn't affect DCF or EBIT multiples valuations.

Thanks for your feedback! Let us know if we missed something.


Hi Jeff,

That post was from 2 years ago, and the v1 screeners were launched not long after. There is no imminent large change to the screeners functionality, but if you have ideas, please let us know!


You can create a screener using the QVGA metrics. You can filter it by creating a new screener. You can also filter and sort easily if you export the data and open it in Excel.

OSV Online and the spreadsheet does not work for companies categorized as financials, OTC, pink sheets and ADR's. While we do have data for these companies, the valuation methods and custom ratios we use are not 100% calculated due to the company's lack of financials.

Financial stocks have a different financial statement format which is not supported with the valuation models.

Not enough data is available for OTC and pink sheet stocks.

Some ADR's have issues because the filter does not convert their local currency to USD.

Hi. This feature is already implemented. Please see this

When you click that button, you'll expand the page to a new Window. 

Regarding multiple columns, this will depend on your screen real estate. 

As for multiple filters, that's another thing. A good way to do this is to export the screener and just use Excel or Google Sheets to filter the results.

Released. Applied to each of the scores. So now there is an annual and qtr version.

Most likely what you'll see soon. Harder than I thought as we had to update some things to pull qtr into the app and then figuring out how to display 2 charts without making a mess.
