Score Leader for 50 Picks!

November 11, 2014 – Comments (1) | RELATED TICKERS: CYNK , IBIO , TENX

I am now Score Leader for 50 picks. Screw the points, I'm hopelessly mired near the bottom. My new goal is to have a portfolio of all Score Leaders, quarter of the way there as of today!



On Twitter and IPO's and Jim Cramer

CAPS needs an IPO function so those of us who want to up/down thumb a new issue can get the subscription price as our starting price. I up-thumbed TWTR the night before at $26 but my start price is more like the post-pop number for just a couple of points.   [more]



Busted and starting over . . .

Sadly, all four years of my picks, score leaders,snarky taunts and clever comments have evaporated into the grand ether of the net today. I broke The Motley Fool's back end software by accumulating in excess of 16,000 picks, so the IT gods have re-set my profile, erased my 4,000 or so points, and I begin my Sisyphean task all over again with a symbolic 16 picks - just three orders of magnitude away from blowing it all up again!



New CAPS Pick Rules?!

June 14, 2010 – Comments (10)

Okay, I seem to have missed the announcement but the revised help files confirm it. The old Pick Rules of a minimum $1.50 price and $100 Million Market Cap are dead. The new Pick Rules are a minimum price of only 50 cents plus $50,000 trading volume on the previous day, and a recent average trading volume of $50,000. This opens up a whole new world of thumbs up and thumbs down spec plays in the low priced arena. Did I miss the e-mail or press release? Something huge like this should have been announced in some way. The first time I noticed a stock was pickable even though it's market cap was below $100 million I even filled out a BUG REPORT!  [more]
