Stock Scraper for Canadian Financial Data
Scrapes several online sources to get:

- Quarterly and annual EPS and revenue for the past year.
The information is then stored in an SQLite database.

This table is calculated by running a specific screen, defined in the filt() function. It excludes all oil and mineral companies and looks for companies that have been growing revenue and EPS consistently for a number of years, and also have a low P/E ratio. Please note that companies in this list may not be particularly good investments.
