Stock Pitches

How do you go about finding the stocks to pitch?

I am looking on seekingalpha for ideas, but was wondering if there is better process that I can follow?

Do you start by picking sector and then identify the best 3-4 names?

Any help is appreciated here, thank you.

There should be some discussions about this if you spend some time searching the forums. Not sure how difficult it would be to find them. 

Anyways, I consider myself a bottoms-up fundamental investor. I will start with some sort of screener based on some metrics I think are important. From there, I will take a quick look at the companies remaining to understand their business model/how they make money. If I like some, I will spend some time learning about the candidate's industry, competitors, supply chain, etc (essentially run a 5-forces analysis). Finally, if the industry shows favorable characteristics, I will complete deeper diligence to determine potential for investment.

ROE, PEG, PEGY, FCF yield, SGR, etc

Importance of various ratios will vary from industry to industry depending on a few different factors
