The Fool Ratio calculation appears to use the first competitor (column F), rather than the average of the competitors.

Oh my. You're exactly right -- and it's in both versions of the spreadsheet. Thank you so much for the catch. I'll post an announcement in Monday night's Maker Report, along with corrected versions for download.

In the meantime, for anybody who wants to fix it themselves, it's very simple. (This applies to both versions of the sheet.):

First, turn off the protection by going to the "Tools" menu, and choose "Unprotect Sheet." (No password is required.)

Second, in the formula within cell E52, in the three instances where there is an "E," change it to "H."

Third, from the Tools menu, choose "Protect Sheet," and save.

I certainly apologize for the inconvenience. I owe Lance major, major thanks for this important catch.
