Thank you Dan, you can head to the website's screener feature to see what they have to offer. Click on help (top right corner of website) for the calculation of each parameter.

Good job!!
Great financial Web site. Do they have fundamental info to be retrieved (e.g. sales, net income, etc.) from their quarterly reports?
