I just finished TMFIG. I was looking for ways to do the small cap stock screening online. Using a stock screener at hoovers.com, I was able to use 6 of the Foolish 8 criteria. The criteria were not identical to the book, but similar. For example, PEG at hoovers.com is calculated based on the last years earnings, not two years of future earnings estimates.

The screen was based on the following criteria:
1) Revenue growth > 25%
2) Earnings growth > 25%
3) PEG < 0.5
4) Revenue < 200 million
5) Market value < 500 Million
6) Profit Margin > %10

Anyway, running the screen left me with 131 stocks. Admittedly, this is not the complete picture but does this sound like a reasonable starting point? Also, where online can I find relative strength and reliable earnings estimates?

I guess what I am really trying to accomplish here is not buying the IBD or Zack's.

Thanks in advance!
Mark
