How To Use The Wilshire 5000 Stocks List To Find Investment Ideas

The volume of stocks contained within the Wilshire 5000 makes the database available in this article a very useful tool to find investment ideas.

This resource becomes even more powerful when combined with a working knowledge of Microsoft Excel.

With that in mind, this tutorial will show you how to implement two useful investing screens to the stocks within the Wilshire 5000 list.

The first screen we’ll apply will be appealing to value investors – it searches for stocks with price-to-earnings ratios below 10 and market capitalizations below $1 billion.

Step 2: Click on the filter icon at the top of the price-to-earnings ratio column, as shown below.

Step 5: Change the filter setting to “Less Than” and input 1000 into the field beside it, as shown below. Since the spreadsheet measures market capitalization in millions of dollars, filtering for stocks with capitalizations below “$1000 million” is equivalent to screening for securities whose market capitalizations are below $1 billion.
