I came across an interesting stock screener/filter recently:  Stockpickr.com

Stockpickr

Its described by some of the creators as a "MySpace for stock picking" (but I’m not sure if thats a good thing). A better way to think about it is more like Amazon’s recommendation engine.

James Altucher is involved, and even though we frequently disagree about macro-economics, he has a good history with both hedge funds and online stock analysis.
