FWIW I believe AAII's attempt to replicate MF has not held up either. I don't believe it is an exact translation of the screen, but its nonetheless very close. Their MF return was really rough last year, double digit decline, and the last 5 years is basically a goose egg (0%) return (v. S&P 500 up about 13% during the same time frame).

In general it seems the best screens need to be backtested through some bad years, some good years and some sideways years before their true colors are revealed.
