OT: Free IBD access

I just read that for this week, IBD access if free. IBD has a very large database of stocks it tracks and the provides many relative rankings for growth components. It also has a column called “The New America” where it highlights young and growing companies - it may be free all the time. This column is a very good hunting ground and where I found LGIH. It recently highlighted HUBS and has profiled many of the stocks mentioned on this board.

Check this for the LGIH “quote” page, which includes relative rankings.
