CAPS and Exponential Growth
It is nice that you can be an all star in CAPS and actually play the game like you do in real life. Interestingly, I think you'll see, in about 5 years time (if this thing is still going - I think it will) people who wait and hold some killer companies will start dominating CAPS.
Here is an example....
You bought XYZ corp at $5 and several years later its at $30. The Market is up 25% in that same time period, so you've got 475 points in your CAPS. That's pretty good. You've done well and sleep soundly that night. You wake up and great news, the stock pops 10% that day. That's good, 10 more points, right (if the market is flat)? Wrong. You now have a stock that's at $33. You're up 560% on your stock. You just added 60 points! When people start putting up big gains like that, these short'em quick players won't be able to compete as easily. They simply can't get exponential returns like thumbs up players can.
I watched a video interview with TMFEldrehad and he said something to this effect, I wasn't sure what he was trying to say at the time, but I think this is what he meant. Math rules! It'll be neat to see if we get some players to come out of the woodwork and start taking over the shorties!
