Dennis -

I don't use it, but Morningstar is good. They have ROE numbers going back 10 years, if available. Companies that earn at least 15%-18% ROE almost always are profitable on an EVA/enterprising basis. Morningstar also has free cash flow numbers. FCF and defensive profits (see my book) are the same.
