I'd really like to blend something with yey. I want to own at least ten stocks in MI, but I don't want to pick more than 5 stocks from yey (the performance falls off if pick 10 stocks).

I think the blend is somewhat more important than just individual Screen performance. I like consistant year-year returns. You might consider blending with EG5_AT or an SoS of 10. The picks are available at the backtest.org link http://backtest.org/saucer/?V=2&f=1&rr=&o=v&...

example:
SOS ValueRatio/PIH_CSO_simple/PIH_MCP/YLDEARNYEAR/PLOWEG5_RS631/EG5_AT 1-5:10 max 5
