OK, I'm just trying to have a little fun here. This investor does consider valuation while selecting and monitoring his investments. A portion of this valuation information can be found every Monday at the following link:

www.fool.com/Stockscreens/risingmargins.htm

Selected samples follow:

Texas Instruments TXN 26% 66%

There are companion links, from the one listed above, which show Falling Margins, Beat Estimates, and Missed Estimates.

I would much rather spend a few moments on Monday scanning these lists. One of my other options is to try to make heads or tails out of things like the Oracle CEO's sound bite on CNBC on how his company is going to beat out Siebel Systems in the CRM area.

Thanks for the poll, Bruce

Hope this helps add to the valuation thread.
