I’m still not convinced this is a viable approach for a screen.

Nor am I.

The SA author just said that he posted the wrong current picks in his article. He previously said that he posted the wrong graph. Who is to say that he didn't make any other mistakes.

In practice it's a useless screen if you cannot get the data you need. Which is the individual analysts earning estimates, so you can compute the standard deviation.

The theory is interesting, but you need to be able to verify the claims, and to actually be able to implement it.
