One minor change this week: In the fifth column, QPZ, I'm now
reporting this value as a percentile rank because the meaning of a
percentile rank is immediately clear whereas the raw score seemed
meaningless.

Soon I'll be presenting these tables in an Excel-compatible format.

Looking for Mr. Goodbuy (data from Jan 6, 2008)

A mechanical approach to finding BMWm candidate stocks

Table 1: Sorted ascending on RMS

See a brief explanation below the tables.  And see a longer explanation
  in BMW Board message 27893.

Selected on: Manifest Quality >= 65; BMWm Return Factor >= 25%
  PAR less than MIPAR+15% (this week 12.7% + 15% = 27.7%), with
  more than 6 years of BMWm-type data.

Above the line = TMF CAPS rating >= 90%

* = RMS <= -1.5
+ = At least 16 Yrs of data, Stewardship = A|B, M* = 4|5, CAPS % >= 95
- = PAR is larger than MIPAR+10% (22.7% this week), thus approaching
    the realm of the unbelievable.

Looking for Mr. Goodbuy (data from Jan 6, 2008)

A mechanical approach to finding BMWm candidate stocks

Table 2: Sorted descending on QPZ (Quality z-score+PAR z-score,
         expressed as a percentile rank),

See a brief explanation below the tables.  And see a longer explanation
  in BMW Board message 27893.

Selected on: Manifest Quality >= 65; BMWm Return Factor >= 25%
  PAR less than MIPAR+15% (this week 12.7% + 15% = 27.7%), with
  more than 6 years of BMWm-type data.

Above the line = TMF CAPS rating >= 90%

* = RMS <= -1.5
+ = At least 16 Yrs of data, Stewardship = A|B, M* = 4|5, CAPS % >= 95
- = PAR is larger than MIPAR+10% (22.7% this week), thus approaching
    the realm of the unbelievable.

Looking for Mr. Goodbuy (data from Jan 6, 2008)

A mechanical approach to finding BMWm candidate stocks

Table 3: Sorted ascending on RMS

See a brief explanation below the tables.  And see a longer explanation
  in BMW Board message 27893.

Selected on: Manifest Quality >= 65; BMWm Return Factor >= 25%
  PAR less than MIPAR+15% (this week 12.7% + 15% = 27.7%), with
  more than 6 years of BMWm-type data.

* = RMS <= -1.5
+ = At least 16 Yrs of data, Stewardship = A|B, M* = 4|5, CAPS % >= 95
- = PAR is larger than MIPAR+10% (22.7% this week), thus approaching
    the realm of the unbelievable.

Looking for Mr. Goodbuy (data from Jan 6, 2008)

A mechanical approach to finding BMWm candidate stocks

Table 4: Sorted descending on QPZ (Quality z-score+PAR z-score,
         expressed as a percentile rank),

See a brief explanation below the tables.  And see a longer explanation
  in BMW Board message 27893.

Selected on: Manifest Quality >= 65; BMWm Return Factor >= 25%
  PAR less than MIPAR+15% (this week 12.7% + 15% = 27.7%), with
  more than 6 years of BMWm-type data.

* = RMS <= -1.5
+ = At least 16 Yrs of data, Stewardship = A|B, M* = 4|5, CAPS % >= 95
- = PAR is larger than MIPAR+10% (22.7% this week), thus approaching
    the realm of the unbelievable.

Looking for Mr. Goodbuy (data from Jan 6, 2008)

A mechanical approach to finding BMWm candidate stocks

Table 5: Sorted descending on QPZ (Quality z-score+PAR z-score
         expressed as a percentile rank) with picks restricted to
         PAR >= MIPAR+5% and PAR <= MIPAR+10%.

See a brief explanation below the tables.  And see a longer explanation
  in BMW Board message 27893.

Selected on: Manifest Quality >= 65; BMWm Return Factor >= 25%
  PAR>=MIPAR+5% and PAR<=MIPAR+10% and > 6 years of BMWm-type data.

* = RMS <= -1.5
+ = At least 16 Yrs of data, Stewardship = A|B, M* = 4|5, CAPS % >= 95

Key to column headings

Yrs = # of years of BMWm-type data available for this firm
Qual = The firm's Quality rating calculated by Manifest
PAR  = The firm's Projected Annual Return calculated by Manifest
QPZ = Sum of Z-scores for Qual and PAR, expresssed as a percentile rank
RMS = RMS data from mklein9, otherwise from sheridan03's charting tool
RF = BMWm Return Factor from mklein9, otherwise from sheridan03
CAPS% = % of TMF CAPS "All-Stars" who rate this stock to beat the S&P 500
CAPS # = The number of TMF CAPS "All-Stars" who have rated this stock
P/E = P/E from Morningstar (as of most recent Friday's close) 
M* = Morningstar's overall rating of the firm (1 to 5, worst to best)
Stew = Morningstar's "stewardship" rating of firm's management (A=best)
Fin Str = Manifest's rating of the firm's Financial Strength (100=best)
EPS Stab = Manifest's rating of a firm's EPS growth stability (100=best)
Proj Yld = Projected Yield (from Manifest)
Zr = Zacks rank (1=best), direction of 30-day change, and size of the change

Other mysteries explained:

MIPAR = Manifest's lingo for the current median PAR value for all 2700
stocks in Manifest's database; I discard stocks with a PAR greater
than MIPAR+15% because I consider such high PAR values not credible.

Manifest defines a PAR "sweet spot" as >= MIPAR+5% and <= MIPAR+10%.
Table 5 (above) is restricted to stocks with PAR values within
this sweet spot.

For a more detailed explanation, see message 27893 on the BMW Board.
