an innocent looking rule that may have produced a multi-million dollar damage (already and there is more to come)
(that was my attempt at producing a catchy headline, hehe)
the 10 "all-time best picks" (out of more than 3000000)
the 10 "best picks" from my list (out of less than 500)
HGSI Human Genome Sciences Inc. 2722.77
VVTV ValueVision Media Inc. 999.84
SEH Spartech Corp. 702.03
CENX Century Aluminum Co. 608.99
BGP Borders Group Inc. 607.82
NVAX Novavax Inc. 528.27
FITB Fifth Third Bancorp 513.79
GMK Gruma S.A.B. de CV ADS 465.70
DNDN Dendreon Corp. 463.25
BLC Belo Corp. 393.96
(since I don't have historical intra-day data for the benchmark (the S&P 500 index) and since some of the calls were made "outside of regular trading hours" I have taken the closest (in time) open or close quotes to calculate the "caps" game scoring system scores. I have not included any dividends that may have been paid so the "actual" performance maybe better.)
The sum of the scores of the 10 "all-time best picks" (again, out of more than 3000000) is 8388.09.
The sum of the scores of the 10 "best picks" from my list (again, out of less than 500 and dividends not included) is 8006.43.
(also have a look at comments 8-10 here.)
I (again) rest my case, hehe ...
