Thanks, rnam, just the info I needed!

What I'm searching for is a ratings service, I guess you'd call it, that is independent enough and accurate enough, to be a first-run, second opinion on stocks that I dig up by screening. It takes so much time to do any half-serious vetting of new-to-me names, that it becomes a full-time job. That's hard to justify when so few make it through the vetting process. I was willing to pay someone else to do the prelim work on vetting. Morningstar comes to mind but they don't mess with hardly any of some little companies that I'm interested in. Think "Rule Breakers" type stocks, but unfortunately I don't like to invest in a big group like that, since IMO, TMF has become influential enough that my fellow investors with the same inormation become my competition so to speak. Might have to bite that bullet anyway < sigh >.

Thanks again for the story; I appreciate it.

Any suggestions?

I use the ValueLine(R) Investment Service that my local library provides for the free price of a Library Card. I especially like to prospect in their 5 Rated = SELL stocks because VL is a momentum based service so after careful quality screening research the VL Rankings can only go up!!!
