CREAF; and Gaming the System
I finally ended my outperform pick on CREAF today. I had to face the facts, the stock is going down and its going to keep going down, despite the quality of its products.
I love Creative's products, especially the Creative Zen Vision M; I have one in addition to my Ipod, and I really don't use the Ipod anymore because the Vision M is so much better.
Ah well, hopefully the leadership over at Creative will get it together and get profitable and I can finally own the stock of a company that I really like.
My score is stuck at around 95-97. I want to get up into the 99th percentile, but it looks like I'm going to have to start "gaming the system", aka, ending stocks after a quick +5 and then re-upping them for the accuracy points. Sure, its a pain in the ass, unpleasant, and smacks of dishonesty...but everyone else is doing it; and they're doing it under the guise of "proving that caps can be gamed", when in reality we know they just want the high score, like we all do.
