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 screening tool
RF = BMW Return Factor from mklein9, otherwise from sheridan03's screener
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 Pred = Manifest's rating of the firm's EPS predictability (5 to 100)

Other mysteries explained:

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