Here is the Warren's Checklist for Potential Investments:
Are the earnings of the company strong and showing an upward trend?
Buffett looks whether a company has a strong long-term growth as well as an indication of an upward trend. Looking at the 10-year history, and the 5-year history, he gets a good about the company’s performance in the market. If he finds that the company has suffered a loss for more than twice or thrice, or its earning has been reducing consistently for years together, he would never invest in such stocks.
Proposed Criteria: It’s a positive sign if in the recent period, the company earnings have grown faster than the overall period. Even a consistent 10 years growth in Earnings Per Share (EPS), with ideally not more than 1 year of downfall and no negative EPS years, is one of his preferred stock.
