This screen uses only 3 criteria:

1) Stocks must be in the S&P500

2) The price to sales ratio must be lower than
the industry P/S ratio.

3) Take the top 5 stocks that have the highest
annual sales growth rate divided by the price/sales ratio.

Using the Zack backtester,
5 stocks, 4 week hold this screen had the following results for 2006:

CAGR of 38%
Win ratio of 85%
Drawdown of -2.2%

This was about double the return of the S&P over the same period.

Some current values from Zacks:
ABC
HUM
FIS
KMI

Using the same screen in the MSN free screener gives
KMI
NAV
HUM
GM
ABC
