Eblakemore-I think the screen you point out and the one I brought up are one and the same. The list as far as I can see brings up the same companies based on Graham's criteria for the defensive investor except for the dividend requirement of continuous payment over a 20 year interval.
I also note the same things that you do. Namely that indutries such as home builders,cyclicals, and machine parts show up.
I just wish there was a screen to view companies selling at 2/3 or less of a companies net working capital. I haven't found one yet, if anyone knows of one or can devise one to screen for this I would be interested. For now I do it the old fashioned way. I consult with my library's value line survey and look in the bargain stock section.
