Lol, Circus, I'm not *that* stupid. :)

Assuming the first ticker is in cell A2, my left-handed method of getting a list of tickers:

B2=IF(ISBLANK(A2),A2,A2&","&A34)

Jeff, I'm reluctant to post a portfolio anywhere, security concerns being as they are these days. Maybe I am being anal, I don't know, but I do know that every time I enter anything about a company or search out info for a stock, I get spam from [more]

Thanks, guys,

I'm still evaluating the different methods you offered here plus "API" from the mechanical investing board.

Re: < Boom! >

Thanks, Circus,

So for a dummy, to automate this ... would the idea typically be to build a text string with the API info and tickers, to then click on to retrieve the data, or is it more complicated than that?

Re: A Weighted* View

Hi Elan, I do lurk here off an on. Enough to get the gist of the posts, but not enough to understand who's doing what as far as investing with any of the screens. I do understand why not everyone is anxious to share their experiences and results, but [more]

A Weighted* View

Hi guys,

In attempting to give weight to not only the number of screens a company passes but also the PLACEMENT RANK it passed in, I came up with the following table where the “Score” is the “reverse” of the sum of all the places of a stock. [more]

Hot Swap Drive
