Using the 275 screens lists (mghens and keelix) from the MI board for this week,
I took the top 3 stocks from each screen, put it into the Zacks portfolio.

I put in the following criteria:

- quarter over quarter year ago earnings growth > 20%
- quarter over previous quarter earnings growth > 20%
- Zacks rating = 1 (strong buy)
Finally, I sorted by 52 week return divided by the P/E ratio
as I start from the best, then check the chart, and work my
way down.

I have been doing this for a while and have had some good
success, POT and MOS being some of my best.
So I thought I'd share this idea. We'll see how this list does.

One week out-
index averages up 4.9%; stock picks up 10.1%

Two weeks-
index averages up 5.6; stock picks up 6.5%.

Will do another selection in the next few days-
if any interest.

I would certainly like to see it - sounds like a best of the best and with any momentum in the market it should do very well.
