Here is one way to build PEG26 using Finder.

1. Start with Stockscouter rating >=8 You could go down to 7 but I don't.
2. P/E ratio:current >1 The official screen is >0 but SS only has >= as a choice.
3. %Price Change Last 6 mo. High As Possible Here is where it gets a bit interactive. What I do is set it to High As Possible, then limit the number to 25 in the box at the upper right corner. I then set the value to whatever the 25th highest value is.
4. Next field down, I put %EPS Growth Next Year to Display only I then click the top of the EPS column to switch between an ascending and decending sort to find the top 10 projected EPS growth rate.
5. Lastly, I create the PEG variable by selecting P/E Ratio: current, manually typing the "/" sign, then selecting %EPS Growth Next Year and setting the operator to Display Only. I use my Mk. 1 eyeballs to select the lowest 5 PEG stocks, excluding any below .2

I freely admit that this seems cumbersome but after you do it a time or two it becomes very easy. Also, there may well be a better way to do it. This is just the way I have done it since Last September or so.
