To filter out mutual funds and ETFs, add a line for PE Ratio. Mutual funds won't have a PE Ratio.

What if I want only mutual funds to show up. What conditional statements would I use to filter out unwanted stocks(all)?

Also try Historical Volatility(100,1) below 25 to filter out almost all funds and trusts.

Unfortunately, anytime you test for a pe ratio of 0 (or negative), you also seem to filter out any stocks w/o a PE. This is fine if you don't want to see those, but some of the biggest moves (albeit more risky) come from stocks w/o a PE. Just a thought.
