Flowie does not exist for companies the do not break out Current Assets/Liabilities from Total Assets/Liabilities.

Here are a few links to some writings I've found useful in analyzing financial institutions:

You can try browsing my speadsheets for ideas (http://www.geocities.com/madmarv00). I've been meaning to update the one on financial institutions but it hasn't been a high priority for me lately. You should also try searching the individual TMF stock boards of the major financial companies (C, AXP, MWD, etc.). The traffic is relatively light so finding the gems in the rough is not as difficult as you might imagine.
