I am interested in exploring the idea of weighting the PEG5 based on it position in the screen. This would be similar to the foolish 4 in Robert Sheard's book where two of the stocks are 33% and two are 17%. If with backtesting we could discover that for example the PEG stock in position 3 has a better historical performance than the other positions, we could weight that stock heavier in our portfolio. Has this ever been researched? I would love to look into this idea, but I don't want to reinvent the wheel. Also, any good tips on finding historical quoutes of stock prices back to 1986?
