after a long stretch of declining scores (even temporarily losing All-Star status last year), I'm back in the comfortable mid-90s.
The reasons? Maybe not having any recent activity and holding on to my picks. I will look into it in more detail.
I have mentioned that I greatly value Warren Buffett, and I see myself very much as a value investor. I agree with the emphasis on sound management, reasonable valuation and strategic focus as being key in selecting investments. [more]
Since a few days I have become a "Score Leader" in BXG. I have had this company on my list of "sell" recommendations for about a year for reasons outlined in my pitch. Their dramatic plunge in share price now helped me get above the 70% threshold in my Fool ranking after weeks of mediocrity.
today, January 10, 2006, I reached a ranking of 99.13 - the first time above 99! Looking at the ranking, progressing further will be difficult to accomplish, I think as I have a high accuracy with a relatively low total score. I wonder if this is a glitch or I will eventually make it into the Top Fool's Club with my strategy that I would currently summarize as "think long-term, score short-term".
