In looking thru the Excel 5 version of the Rule Maker Ranker spreadsheet, I think that I may have discovered a possible error in one of the formulas. In Section #4 - Monopoly Status, each of the formulas compare the values of the target company (column B) against the average of the 3 competitors (column I) with one glaring exception. The Fool Ratio calculation appears to use the first competitor (column F), rather than the average of the competitors. Depending on which competitor you place in the first column, this could cause the value in the Flow Ratio cell to vary from 0 to 4 pts, when it should stay the same regardless of the order of the competitors.

Just thought I would bring this up to everyone before we all start posting potentially incorrect results to the message boards.

Fool On!
