Include the Beta of a stock as a new field
Ranking stocks by VST would allow you to then graph then to assess the rate of ascent or decline of the ranking. This would allow us to see a rising or falling star earlier and assess the rate or slope of change. I think this could be quite a powerful tool.
The put call ratio is enticing but will not give you the information you want if you are looking for short or long interest. Puts and calls can be bought or sold for different outlooks. i.e. buying a call does not necessarioy mean the purchaser thinks the stock is going up and conversely for the puts. The % Short Interest is a much more believable peice of information.
