Which of these screens do the best over a longer
period of time (before 2008)?

Haven't tested all the ETF's screens longer than 5yr and some of them wouldn't have a longer history anyway. Have tested BroMkt_AA from 2003 but don't have the numbers handy.

If my results were as good as the five year tests I would be a happy camper. And the results as posted below include several screen changes over time(listed as accounts).

Market Total Returns (CAGR ex. YTD)           YTD(ROI)       TTM  Jan-09 TD  Jan-04 TD  StartD  Reference:
