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 Expected Return >= 25%
  PAR less than MIPAR+15% (this week 11.0% + 15% = 26.0%), with
  at least 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

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

Selected on: Manifest Quality >= 65; BMWm Expected Return >= 25%
  PAR less than MIPAR+15% (this week 11.0% + 15% = 26.0%), with
  at least 6 years of BMWm-type data.

Looking for Mr. Goodbuy (data from Nov 18, 2007)

A mechanical approach to finding BMWm candidate stocks

Table 4: Sorted descending on QPZ (Quality z-score+PAR z-score)

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

Selected on: Manifest Quality >= 65; BMWm Expected Return >= 25%
  PAR less than MIPAR+15% (this week 11.0% + 15% = 26.0%), with
  at least 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 = the sum of Z-scores I've calculated for Qual and for PAR.
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 to D)
Fin Str = Manifest's rating of the firm's Financial Strength (0 to 100)
EPS Stab = Manifest's rating of the firm's EPS growth stability (5 to 100)
Zks = 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 PAR values not credible.
