I just happened to see me mentioned in a pitch, looked at the player's other calls and noticed that he is apparently a "meta-player" that adopts calls other players have made and he is pretty good at that. I wonder what his selection criteria are. Well, the player is lllchicalll.

Please add links to other meta-players and if you are at least to some extend a meta-player please describe your "system" and explain why you think it does or does not work.

I was impressed until I looked at his ended picks.

I have mentioned you in my picks porte...

I don't exactly profess to have a system but I use the collective intelligence gathered here to make my picks. since I don't think that I have much of an advantage reading financial statements or reading between the lines of press releases I am experimenting with the philosophy of looking at favored sectors, reading through pitches and adding added weight towards star ratings, highly rated player (with consistent track records) opinions and even checking out anticitrade's site for another angle.

I have a RL portfolio that is based on MF Caps: SAY, KVA, MWA, S, OPCDF, AOI, WNR and a touch of SRS just for kicks...16.33% since end of August...but I am sure there are lots of combos that are up like that since then...let's see how it holds up.

I like to hear bulls and bears...and buy on a breaks upward rather than catching the falling knife. when you see high rated bulls, bears, TA guys and astrology experts come to a consensus on a ticker I start to follow it and give the green or red accordingly. over the long haul I think my system will pay off and I will work my way up through the ranks...hoping to be eligible for ASP someday. :)

Whne you say meta player do you mean dogpilers? or juts guys who compile picks from top players?

There used to be a portfolio on here (can't remember the name) that mainly copied the top 10 players picks.

Do you think that creating a portfolio of my 10 favorite picks from Tasty, Chris and Porte's ideas would make me an idiot?

No I wouldn't consider you that, as long as you learn why the picks are good or bad.

Mimickry is timeless entry level learning technique

I wouldn't copy anything that doesnt have a pitch. That way you can at least know why someone picked what they picked.

It can help you avoid someone's score who might be mean reverting (like mine!) or too heavily into one style of trade.

I used I think four or five of your picks that you gave me when I asked for help as my thumbs up to get back in the game and a couple of my own thumbs down.  All but one have done very well. Thanks.

I have a lot of favorites.  When I get the list of picks made, I take a look at them.  If I can understand why a pick was made and agree, I'll thumb it. Otherwise, I pass.

I have learned some great lessons this way, and my RL portfolio has definitely benefitted from the CAPS experience. Thanks to all the Top Fools for lessons learned - by seeing the market through your eyes, I can lift the wool from mine.
