Are there really any stocks that fit both the Foolish 8 and PEG less than .5 criteria? I paid my $50 and ordered the Foolish 8 criteria last night (apparently updated through 3/20/00). I then spent a few minutes today and tried to determine whether any of the stocks listed had PEG's less than .5. I didn't find any. My calculations might be wrong. If there are any Fools out there who can point me to any stocks that fit both the Foolish 8 and have PEG's less than .5 I'd sure like to hear from you. Right now, I'm pretty skeptical. I input 6 of the 8 Foolish 8 criteria in a custom "Finder" screen in Microsoft's Investor, and added another delimiting parameter of PEG less than 1. Result? Only two stocks-- GMTC and SLNK. Those two stocks may currently have PEG's near .5, but if that's all there is out of something lilke 8,000 publicly traded stocks, how utilitarian is the second prong (Foolish 8 small caps growth stocks with PEG less than .5) of the Gardners' investment advice in TMF Investment Guide? (The first prong being Dividend Yield and the third being shorting.) SOMEBODY TELL ME I'M WRONG, PLEASE, BUT IT LOOKS TO ME LIKE ONE IS AS LIKELY TO DISCOVER A STOCK THAT FITS FOOLISH 8 CRITERIA AND PEG LESS THAN .5 AS ENCOUNTERING A WILD BENGAL TIGER IN NORTH DAKOTA. Maybe that's why I can't find a board here that shows stocks that fit both Foolish 8 and PEG less than .5 criteria. SOMEBODY PLEASE DISABUSE ME OF MY SKEPTICISM.
