2018 Q1 Addendum: Additional Screen

Just out of curiosity, I quickly ran the same screen I used in my previous blog post, this time searching for companies that Value Line rates a 2 for Safety and either A++ or A+ for Financial Strength.  As before, I eliminated any company with an S&P credit rating below A-, as well as any company with a Morningstar value rating below 3 stars.  This time there were several companies without S&P credit ratings; some had very low or no debt, and some did not.  I include them all here, however.  All data points gathered after the market close on April 5.
