Project description

Stock Score is a python script to score stocks based on specified criteria. The goal of this project is to provide a stock screening system for various types of stock classifications (growth, momentum, value, etc.).

Similar to how one might rank the best options when they are deciding where to go to dinner, Stock Score lets investors choose what screens they want to run. Then, this script takes care of the rest, showing which stocks performed best under the given screens.


  • You can get the latest version of Python 3 here (this should come with the latest version of pip)

  • All dependencies are contained in requirements.txt (more on that directly below)

Getting Started

To clone this repository, run the following:

git clone

Change working directory to project folder

cd my/path/to/stockscore

Create a virtual environment

python3 -m venv env

Activate the virtual environment. See the docs for help.

Then make init to install required modules.

Run the program!

To make sure that everything is working, while in the working directory of the stockScore project, run python3

Note: Make sure you are using python3. This project does not support versions below Python 3.6 since it uses f strings. This may change in the future to allow for earlier versions of Python to run.

Here is an example output of what you can expect to see when you run the program:

Running the tests

All tests can be run by simply running


In order to run a specific test file (like, run

pytest tests/

To run a specific test (like “test_dividend_test_returns_scores” in, run

pytest tests/ -k 'test_dividend_test_returns_scores'

For more information on how to use pytest (like how to select a few tests), look here for the official pytest docs.


In order to make code styling simple, this project uses black. To make sure that this code adheres to this opinion based formatting, stockscore uses pre-commit. In order to run black automatically before making a commit, please download pre-commit.

You may need to run pre-commit install before you are able to use this. For more details, check out the pre-commit website.

This project is very simple to deploy to a live system. To change which tests you are using, change which functions are added to the suites (this is the name used in both files) of and

Built With

Python 3 and some great third party modules (see requirements.txt for full list).
