Got my 200 badge - but at such a cost!

AAPL finally broke 200 for me. Yay!

But, Oh!, my CAPS score has fallen, fallen, fallen in recent months. I blame it mostly on the beating Chinese stocks have taken recently. I have three or four Chinese stocks with over -100 points. Yeow! When I picked them, I was betting on China's economic rise. I did not foresee the huge amount of fraud reports and short sell pressure.

Just a few months ago I was flirting with 1000 pts and a rating of 95; now I'm down below 400 and falling through the 80s rapidly. But, what falls rapidly can rise rapidly. I have a few picks that are down over 90%, can't get much lower than that.

Ah well, I hope the guys managing my 401k funds are doing better than I am.

Congrats on the badge. Don't beat yourself up too much over your score. You'll be up again before you know it.

And next time your score gets really high because of beta add some blue chip dividend aristocrats.

Then when the sky falls again your blues will jump at the same time as your beta tanks. (i think)
