Screener: Stocks with Sloan Ratios in the danger zone

The Sloan Ratio Screener is a Red Flag screener that looks at companies with an unusual amount of accruals in earnings. 12 companies qualify - all 12 companies are also classified as IE (Ineligible) for a Durability Score because of issues with their balance sheets. 

The Sloan Ratio is a metric that looks at company earnings, and identifies stocks that have red flags in their numbers. The ratio checks specifically whether the earnings of a company contain a lot of non-cash value - accruals that are items like changes in account receivables, unbilled service fees (where no cash has been exchanged).
