Is Altstry Becoming Bullish???



October 22, 2008 – Comments (3)

I have green thumbed three companies over the last three days for my first net bullish position on CAPS since starting this game in February.  Does that mean I am bullish???  Not a chance and likely not for a while. 

The reason green thumbed is because I recently realized CAPs is a relative game against the S&P and not absolute.  That means that I still expect my green thumbs to go down but just less so than the S&P.  In real life I would probably short these companies so please don't take these picks as somehow Alstry is becoming bullish.  I will be a bull someday....just not now!!!!!

My goal is become the No. 1 rated player in CAPS.  In order to do so I have to improve my accuracy....these picks are done in an attempt to accomplish that watch me fail miserably as I prostitute my intellectual intergrity for the sake of a game.....but some of us are competitive pricks and on that charge I enth usiastically plead guilty.

No its time to fly by TRDH as I come up on DWOT's backside.

By the way I lost my was a was a loyal pal but a bit snipy and tempermental, if you see it please tell him to come home...I really miss him.

all things are tinged with the other, a very old concept.

if you've gone green on a company, that's a good signal for me to investigate. you are a very bearish Fool. all my picks are green, but i only have a few.

BTW i had to leave my cat in SC when i moved. i understand completely about your shitzu. i'm sure that he will return to you. :D

I hope so...I miss the puppy.

That said, please take my admonition on CAPS picks in perspective as they are being made in the constext of the game and not in real life.  I would give very different advice in real life.

In addition to being number 1, I want accomplish it with the highest average score with the fewest picks possible.  It is sorta a competition against myself in the end.

My green thumbing is a attempt at mastering a new style....sorta similar to learning different styles in martial arts makes you better at each style individually and more effective overall.

Few can master all.......but sounds like fun to try.
