Ask Colin

Would you please give me information on how to select a share (not necessarily blue chip) out of the several hundred listed on the ASX, without having to purchase a software package that everyone is trying to tell me is essential.

There is a method described in the article I wrote for the ATAA Journal called Finding Value Stocks. You can download this from the Articles page on my free web site It involves a scan of fundamental data. You can do this by hand from Monday's AFR or Shares tables. You then check the charts of the shares selected by the scan.
