It has been a month since my last blog and I have to think WHY?  Could it be that I dont want to be seen little long herd after my "Fall From Grace" debacle.  Moaning over my loss of 900 points in three days which was nothing compared to what was to become.  In the aftermath my fall from 1500 eventually went to a -1000 before any kind of recovery.  You can imagine the celebration and joy when I scratched and clawed my way back to zero. wahoo

I was doing good since starting CAPS in late March.  My score was over 1500 and my rating went to 111 over four mounths.  I started late in the last game and still ended up # 9.  I was number one in this game for the first two days.  I thought there was no stopping me.  Even I thought this was too good to be true and that the fast pace would slow but then three days in a row last week my score fell over 300 points and lost more than half my points.  In my invaness I thought where all just getting masacured!!! but quickly realized some where down and no one did as bad as I did, at least that I found.  Even more demorralizing I didnt even get the coldest player award.  [more]

I have liked copper and nickel for awhile now but today I ventured into STEEL on my CAPS only I have not had the courage to put up my real money on it but I wish I had.  The steel industry has come in 7th for the year with an annual return of 53.39% of all steel companys that are followed by CAPS.  My favorite of all of them is MTL, that may be because that is the one I have most researched.  But I put several into CAPS today that I have not researched well.  I only added stocks that had five star ratings in CAPS, in the hopes they have researched better than I have in this area and I will research them as I can.  Normally I would say not to jump on the bandwagon but the return for the last 30 days has been 13.51% ranking it fourth of all catagories and rated 7th place again for yesterdays return.  Being a cyclical industrie I would not hold on for a long period to me thats three years or less.  I would instead set an amount of return that you want and then sell without an exception as steel is to cyclical to just buy and hold.  [more]



Having a lot of fun with CAPS

July 08, 2007 – Comments (2)

I joined CAPS in the middle of March 2007.  First I would like to say thanks to Montley Fool for such a great site and everyone who has contributed their two cents.  While I have always been proud of my returns it was always seemingly lucky, my immediate friends and family do not have much interest in stocks.  It has been very fun for me to getting the ideas, views, and education from people with the same interest as mine.  I love to research and pick stocks even when I do not have any money to invest. lol  [more]
