Altman Z scores
c You get to see companies approaching bankruptcy, and try to profit from it using Altman Z scores to tell you how likely the company will become bankrupt. I've made some $$ using the model along with the message boards. This models supposedly is 72% accurate, but I'm still a little skeptical. Need independent validation of the this model and get a feel for how robust it actually is model and whether this can change in the future.

You get what you pay for
This is a decent service. Yes they show a lot of companies on the verge on bankruptcy and short set up ideas. These ideas are based on a model and while this model is profitable so was the housing model...and what happened? I don't trust something that cost $14 to make me lots of $$$. If it sounds too good to be true, it is! Lets rant and rave about the Altman Z scores but at the end of the day either you pulled the trigger or you sat and watched.

Great tool for short sellers!!
They have a very unique and useful tool which helps determine the a company by "scientifically proven investment methods". I have heard great reviews about them so far and they are good to keep track of your portfolio. This site is really something different from any other financial websites.

I believe in the power of the Altman-Z score
An excellent tool in balancing a portfolio, the Altman-Z calculator through ShortScreen is built around an easy-to-use interface with copious descriptions of the hows and whys of Altman-Z - all at a reasonable price that, as one other reviewer correctly points out, will more than pay for itself. The message board feature is also handy. It is clear, as the word gets out, that ShortScreen will be a go-to site for up-to-the-minute information and a forum within which savvy investors will connect and trade information. BIG thumbs up.

A Great Service for Investors
My background is that of a technical trader and economist, so the Z-Score is only something I have passing familiarity with. However, I tried Z-Score, and found the service to be easy to understand, intuitive, and straight to the point in terms of helping you identify stocks that can be good short candidates. I was pleasantly surprised to find that the screener is effective even in inflationary market conditions.

As the service is affordable, easy to use, and delivers real value, I think it is appropriate for investors who make medium to long-term decisions (i.e. not active trading) in finding overvalued stocks that can be shorted.

A great tool
The latest market crash taught me the importance of having short exposure in my portfolio. Even the best stocks can get hammered in poor overall economic conditions. A prudent investor should be hedged against macro-economic misfortunes by setting himself up to profit from falling stock prices.

Shortscreen.com assists me greatly in finding stocks to short. It uses Altman Z scores to find the stocks most likely to file bankruptcy. You can also enter any stock ticker, and it will calculate the Altman Z score for you. This is helpful information to know, not only when considering going short, but also when considering investment in risky, deep value stocks.

The website is easy to use and navigate. A cool feature is the message board system. You don't have to be a member to post on the message board, and it is interesting to read the viewpoints of the site's mostly bearish membership, in stark contrast to the vapid, cheerleading tripe you find on most message boards.

Overall, I give Shortscreen.com a 9 out of 10. The price is very reasonable, and the product will more than pay for itself.

shorting stocks now
I never thought I may need a short screener, but i took a look at it after a friend of mine recommended it to me. After seeing the possibilities of shorting stocks and how easily it is set-up to be able to screen and use calculators, I definitely feel confident enough to try it now with my personal savings.

I will definitely be recommending the website to some friends. If it can teach me and teach my friends more about tips, tricks, calculators and screener, I will let my friends know.

You should go check it out; it may be worth it for you.

Short Screen Skinny
Although not a regular short seller, I have encountered the use of the Altman Z-score and found it to be an additional useful tool in the evaluation of an investment for either long or short consideration. The Short Screen website was recommended to me by a friend, so I checked it out.

I found the calculator function to be useful in evaluating a stock being evaluated for investment, but it would be nice to have even more companies within the database.

The screening function appears to be a very nice tool to provide a starting point if you are looking for candidate short stocks.

I am a big fan of message boards and believe that as more messages accumulate, Short Screen will become an effective location for exchange of short selling DD.

Overall, I found the site to be both informative and useful and recommend it as an additional tool for company DD and a great starting point to identify short candidates.
