No, backtesting will not be in the new version of Value Stock Selector. Unfortunately the amount of data required to backtest VSS makes it difficult to include this function and still maintain a low price (other analysis programs that include backtesting charge $2,000 to $5,000 per YEAR for this functionality).
However the new version allows you to save your previous analysis results and then scroll through them using the next/previous buttons.
It also allows you to filter on dividend yield (which was requested by users of version 4.0) and includes the company name and industry in the results (another request from v4.0 users).
I've also added a maximum filter to the rating, moat strength and estimated return (apparently some v4.0 users wanted to use VSS to only find bad stocks).
Finally, it includes a watch function that allows you to enter symbols along with minimum and maximum ratings and moat strengths and will alert you if that stock moves outside your selected ranges.
The interface has also been redesigned to use colours so it is easier to interpret results.
