Plenty of free sites help you screen stocks by criteria like earnings growth or P/E ratios. But Google's Stock Screen tool makes the process intuitive. Want to see only stocks with P/Es at the low end of the range? A bar chart showing the current distribution of P/Es in the market is built right into the selection tool.
