I'm looking for high beta stocks ( >= 3 ) and could find only a small handful. I've been googling "list of beta" etc. but get very few.
Maybe there just aren't that many >= 3.

Yahoo Finance's Equity Screener lets you screen stocks on their S&P 500 betas -- both 1-year betas and 3-year monthly-return betas. That way you can restrict yourself to looking at stocks whose beta is not just briefly high but has been for a longer period of time.
Go to Finviz.com
From the menu select:
Choose the filters that you desire such as BETA
When BETA appears as a header in the data fields, click on it to sort in ascending or descending order.
Here's the straight to that page LINK.
It shows 123 stocks with a beta of > 3.00
