Hello, Fools!

I'm trying to negotiate the amount of time I spend on managing my finances downward... trying to use tools like the Fool, Quicken, etc. to work smarter and leave more time for play.

This is not so much a software question as a web one, but a fellow Fool recommended that I try posting my query here. I'm wondering if anyone is aware of a web-enabled free "watch list" that would do more than give me current quotes on stocks I'm interested in keeping tabs on?

I'm thinking of a system w/ more variables than price, including (but not limited to) things like P/E, percent change since a point I set, beats or misses estimates,
etc. etc.

Then I could plug in the 20 or so stocks that I'm currently "keeping an eye on" and have the watch list email me based on criteria that I set, eg "Hey, Marlys,
WHOSIS's P/E is now in the range you deemed reportable." I don't need "up to the second" updates -- I aspire to having a life -- but would appreciate something like this to help me live in the ground between oblivion and information overload.

Has anyone seen this? Or am I just dreaming?

Thanks for any leads,
