Interesting that PACR, QXM, AHCI, GPX, and SWIR are all on the lowest Price-to-Sales and the lowest Price-to-Book top 10 lists. I own PACR and QXM; if these two post decent earnings going forward, they will seem very inexpensive when looking back.

One wonders what happened to MSFT (2.50% dividend yield) and GD (3.00% yield) as far as dividend yield top 10 list. Maybe they fell of the Magic Formula list.

Hey David - I only used the top 50 over 50 million screen and indeed MSFT and GD are not on there. Using the large cap screen would obviously have produced very different results!

Update: PACR did not post decent earnings for 1Q09. In fact they posted disasterous results. Before noon on the day of their conference call I sold my position in PACR. If the company isn't forced into bankruptcy, and if the economy starts to recover, and if the domestic auto sector (one of PACR's major customers) rebounds somewhat, then at that time PACR may once again be a worthy investment. Until then, there are other fish in the sea.
