Hi RetireFoolishly I just saw your post as there were some new posts to the board. Sand105 seems to be working on version 2 of the spreadsheet. If you thought my spreadsheet was nice wait to you see what Sand produces, I'm sure it will be way better. [No pressure there Sand ;-)]As to your list of companies. Financial service companies have very high book values which throws a spanner in the works. I am not sure how Hewitt or others deal with this, but what I do is increase the Discount rate to discount the high book value and if it is an insurance company then I greatly discount the book value as well. I do this all manually and it reeks of tampering to get a valuation I'm happy with. If anyone else has other ideas please chip in.BestDeanPS I just had a look at TTMI's chart http://stockcharts.com/charts/gallery.html?ttmi and that is just further evidence I still need to get better at watchlisting. I was interested in buying TTMI earlier this year and can't believe it went under $9 and could have easily been bought under $10.PPS KOMG Komag is currently has the highest ER on my wathclist. It might not have a great future, but might be worth a look considering its low valuations. I have no position, just watching for now.
