Anyone know how to filter out biotech stocks? I've used

market is not Industry(Medical - Biomedical)
market is not Industry(Medical - Drugs)
market is not Industry(Medical - Generic Drugs)

and this does get rid of a lot of them, but a bunch still sneak in consistently. I suspect it's that the list of stocks/industries is not updated regularly on this site, but I just want to make sure I'm not missing anything.

I'm not sure those filters work. Try this one:

set{nobio,count(industry equals 36,1)}
nobio equals 0
add column industry

You can go for the Scorched Earth approach. Run this filter:


Change to List View. I recommend you change your maximum results to 100 in your account settings.
Click the topmost checkbox.
Click Ignore Checked at the bottom.
Repeat with each page till you get them all.

Note that sector(medical) includes all things medical, not just biotech. Hospitals, supplies, medical I.T., etc.

Alternatively, you can add each ticker you don't want to the ignore list. You'll get them all eventually!
