Porte, thanks.  The lists right now don't account for inverse or ultra ETFs.  We wanted to get something out quickly to address the growing number of requests.  But I think the new Top Tens will help people in the quest to identify the best investors based on a more varied criteria than just the CAPS scoring system...

* Top Outperform Members
* Top Underperform Members
* Highest Stock Returns
* Highest Outperform Returns
* Highest Underperform Returns

Just two days ago translator999 was "in the lead" by some 1000 "outperform score points". I just wanted to catch the lucky "screen shot". The list can be found via the "Top Tens" tab (-> "member trends" ->  "Top Outperform Members").

portefeuille:  Earlier this evening you said "I was just wondering how you (bravobevo) made your points. Somehow I can't catch up (which is okay!) and most of the stocks you have chosen to rate were completely unknown to me.  Could you elaborate on how you managed to pretty steadily gain points and have left even all those other OB/PK "specialists" in the dust?"

First let me tell you congratulations on how well you are playing. Actually, I do expect that you will "catch up" and pass me soon enough. Something that has benefitted my style is I that when I find some stocks that tend to move up and down within a bandwidth, I'm not hesitant to ride on either side of the trade, both up and down. From that I have been able to score plenty of "points" on some .OB stocks. I've noticed that some players are only willing to trade one side, either up or down, but not up and down.

Some of the stocks that I continue to pick in this manner are AEBF, ISRL, JADA and OZOM, which have individually netted me returns ranging from +300 points to +500 points. A few hundred points here, a few hundred points there, and pretty soon you have a serious score.   There are other stocks that either have been acquired and merged into other businesses or have been delisted.

You are welcome to look at my trades and see if you discern other patterns.  Otherwise, I really like your trading style and I expect you to continue to do well.  Best wishes to you!

So bravobevo is "the best of both worlds".

I liked this comment as well (just kidding).

I like the "top outperform" and "top underperform" options, but the three new "top returns" options are basically useless.  TMF does not allow the lists to be screened by # of picks, so inevitably, top returns are almost always people with less than 15 picks. 

I'd like to see "top returns" with a minimum of 100 picks.

and they are useless because they are not "annualised" in any way (see comment #76 here) ...

It is nice that they tend to listen (if pressure is building up to a certain level) but a lot of improvements that have been suggested and that could be implemented by an average programming guy over a weekend for the cost of a few pizzas and a "thank you, we love your work" just don't seem to make it. One thing I have suggested here would help to clean the "top lists". That is a 10 minute job to implement.

Got it Portefeuille! Unfortunately there have been some great suggestions in blogs that seem to get lost in the noise. I know Jake has some under consideration.  I think that FOOLS should have a CAPs Player DAY, somewhere in the US. Maybe Hawaii...:)   (Those from other countries could send a clone or two, the US needs the tourist business for our economy).

(see comment #16 here)

Also see this post (probably one of the best ever ...) for lots of suggestions, most of them really easy to implement and utterly "non-disruptive" (to the existing system).

TMFJake,

Thanks for the work you've done on improving this. 

As for the "returns" options, I've sorted it that way you suggested before.  That actually reinforces my view that it's useless.  Take a look at the first page of results and you'll see by the time you hit the 20th person, it's already down to "124 active picks"; which suggests that it's much simpler to make the list if you only make a small number of picks. 

What would be interesting is to see the "returns" of all the top rated members and/or the top scoring members.  However, the "top returns" options won't allow you to do that since it will eliminate any top rated or top scoring members who don't have a certain minimal return. 

What I think would be incredibly awesome is if you could make customizable lists that might allow you to filter for a certain specific set of attributes --- kinda similiar to how the screener works.  For instance, I might like to see the "highest rated members", coupled with their "score", "outperform score", "underperform score", and "average return".  I think it would be interested to compare the top 100 based on these attributes.

A method like the one described by foolsmethrice in comment #30 here would be great!

Nice addition by the CAPS team for those doing more in-depth research on the members and their activities.

I am happy to report I placed in the Top 70 on BOTH lists.

I am using at least 4 different "strategies" in creating my CAPS ranking, and do not count on any one to carry me.  I believe this diversified strategy approach will propel me to #1 and beyond, through various market conditions the next several years.

I use short squeeze ideas for many of my smaller capitalization choices, plus market timing and sector plays in the ETF categories.  Additionally, sector-overweightings and/or individual equity selections for many of the mid & large cap companies I own on the long side, plus a few more proprietary strategies I will not mention here, are mainstays of my CAPS game-playing.

I leave no stone unturned, and only bring the best of the best ideas I can "find" to the CAPS list.

One reason why "..." might be an appropriate headline for most of my blog posts. In the comment section they always leave the "core topic" (if there is one) in a very "dynamic" way (which I like! others don't. they want the discussion to "stay focused" but very often the "core post" is utterly boring/stupid and the distance between the discussion and the post is more than welcome (again, to me).) ...

Portefeuille-

You are on my short list of 5 or 6 CAPS members, I want desperately to participate in the new TigerPackFund.

Please participate in this project.  It won't take much time on your part, and should "lead" more readers to your blog posts and picks on your CAPS homepage.

http://caps.fool.com/Blogs/ViewPost.aspx?bpid=215551&t=01008389776301665428

Email if interested, and up to 5 picks, thumbs up or down.

actually I am doing my best to keep them off!

(just kidding, everyone is very welcome of course).

I will think of 5 stocks. It will be something like:

EMC,FACT,SQNM,EXEL,LUK. all "outperform", "long-term".
