I've seen several (dated) posts on people trying to combine the magic formula with Piotroski's F-Score and MSN's Stockscouter, however I have not been able to track down results people have had using this method. Has anyone seen their results improve running the MFI stocks through the additional screens? I envision doing the following (taken from a post on this board, although I can't seem to find it again):

1. MFI screen (from
2. Piotroski F-score greater then 6 (from
3. Check MSN Stockscouter score, if greater then 8, buy the stock
4. If MSN score less then 8, put stock on watch list
5. Continue to recheck MSN score
6. Recheck score indefinately until it increases or falls off the MFI website

Running through that algorithm provides the following list:

This list is sorted first by F-Score (high->low), then by MSN score(high->low), then by Market Cap(low->high).

Ticker F-Score MSN
PDLI 7 10
DLX 7 9
BKE 6 10
CA 6 10
LLL 6 9
INTC 6 9
SCLN 6 8
JCOM 6 8
KLAC 6 8
FRX 6 8
CSCO 6 8

Welcome additional thoughts.
