```If you have access to a Bloomberg license, you can get higher quality
at http://library.wolfram.com/infocenter/MathSource/7357/

The code to call up the P/E ratios for your list of stocks would be

BBGetCurrent[{"MSFT Equity", "GE Equity", "XOM Equity", "XRX
Equity","UPS Equity"},"PE_Ratio"]

If you wanted to use next year's consensus estimated P/E, which most
people would probably find more useful, the call is

BBGetCurrent[{"MSFT Equity", "GE Equity", "XOM Equity", "XRX
Equity","UPS Equity"},"Est_PE_Nxt_Yr"]

You can combine this with he Export command if you like, as demonstrated
by others.

Cheers,

Michael
