Explanation of Notes

Approaching Size Limit: Stocks are sold if their market capitalization goes above three times the initial maximum criterion. The current market capitalization maximum for initial screening is $200 million. Stocks are marked "approaching size limit" if their current market cap exceeds 2 1/2 times the initial criterion, or $500 million.

Approaching Value Limit: Stocks are sold once their price-to-book-value ratio goes above three times the initial criterion. The current initial price-to-book ceiling is 0.80. Stocks are marked "approaching value limit" if their current price-to-book-value ratio exceeds 2 1/2 times the initial criterion, or 2.00.

Currently Qualifies: Stock still qualifies as a buy when the screen is run with current data. Stocks that don't currently qualify as a buy are held until they meet one of the sell rules.

Earnings Probation: If last 12 months' earnings from continuing operations are negative, the stock is put on probation; if a subsequent quarter has negative earnings prior to 12-month earnings becoming positive, the stock is sold. The date within the parentheses lists the calendar quarter during which the company first reported negative trailing 12-month earnings.

Not Qualified as a Buy for 2 Yrs: Stock has not met the buy criteria for over two years and can be sold if cash is needed.
