What do you use to screen for cannibals?

Hi Lou

I don’t use screens but instead create my own programs. Not sure if the effort to look at Canadian pink sheets is even worth the effort. So many great companies in Canada but finding data on US listed companies is easier for me. But after starting the work I stumbled on a site where you can get free insider data on Canadian stocks. More work is needed to finish this post.
