I think this is a wonderful board. And I just read Hewitt's book with the same name. I'm almost up for my first year of investing and plan to do a full review of all my positions and trades. This PIV-ER is definitely an aspect I'm going to look at more closely.

One thing though, a lazy bastard like me always finds it so annoying having to extract these bits of information from various web-pages. I think I'll look into programming a screen with all the portfolio data that I regular use in it and update it automatically with information from the web. Any trading platform I've seen so far is so inadequate in this respect.

I know I'll probably spend more time programming it than it ever saves me in time of looking things up myself, but at least I'll have fun doing it instead of getting constantly annoyed.
