QXM pops up in my stock screen for the umpteenth time, so I type it into Yahoo Finance and this article was linked to it:

http://www.fool.com/investing/general/2009/04/23/a-1-in-100-investor.aspx

This article gave me a good laugh.  I don't laugh out loud often when reading investment articles, so it was great.  Yes, I think those picks will outperform the S&P 500 enough for me to get some decent points, but I haven't researched any of them for more than a few minutes.  They were just stock screen fodder.

Do they ask you guys whether they can use your information , or it is already assumed in the "terms of use"?

Ironically, in Korean, the word "babo" means fool (lower case 'f', as in dimwit).  Your CAPS score, indicates that you're anything but.  Congrats on the unsolicited fame.  Shows what kind of rally we're in that stock screen results turn into great outperforms.  Then again, you probably use very effective stock screen parameters.

I'm sure it's in the terms somewhere.  As long as they don't publish my real name or anything, I'm cool.  As kfisherprotege has pointed out, the only thing you can deduce from my name is that I'm possibly Korean. 

I'm a HUGE advocate of stock screening and mechanical investing in general.  I believe that even a mediocre screen, if followed religiously, would beat the market over the long haul.
