The earliest proponent of IETC on the fool boards is not here. Why? He knows the boards exists, doesn't he? Just wondering.

Hello ghostofdreams,

Well, I feel like a deadbeat fool. I admit I have slipped in my Foolish activities . The reason is that spring has finally arrived in Michigan. That means yard work, getting the garden ready, Tiger baseball and chasing my 1 and 3 year old sons around outside. Now that only 2 or 3 yard projects remain, planting has started in the garden, the Tigers are close to .500 and I have erected a play structure to distract the little ones, I have finally found time to catch up on my backlog of posts to read.

I have to admit when I saw the board open, I thought "Duh, why didn't I think of requesting it." I have to say great job meddler. I plan on becoming a regular contributor. Thanks.

I am working through the post. In case this hasn't been posted yet, here is Hewitt Heisermans website.

http://www.earningspower.com/epc.html

It is not very informative, but does contains one very valuable resource. Heiserman himself. Just click on the contact us link. formorears first emailed HH and received a reply within 20 minutes. I did the same on numerous occasions and received replies immediately. I think the guy lives in front of his computer.

He emailed me his criteria for screening stocks on Yahoo. Here it is:

this is what i do with yahoo finance:

1)i look for an roe over 20%;
2)a price/free cash flow < 25x;
3)more cash than debt;
4)insider ownership over 10-15%;
5)debt less than 5x free cash flow;
6)shares short % float < 10x, and
7)YOY sales growth over 10%.

this is a very quick way of reducing the number of companies to a manageable list. the more you do this the easier it becomes. last, write a gameplan like i mention in the last chapter...it sounds juvenile but it really helped me out. best, hewitt


Looking forward to a great discussion on IETC,
SP
