been to shame-faced to talk around here for quite some time. And, yes it is probably too early to be blogging here. BUT, I finally got my star back! I still look at CAPS, but spend more tme on the boards where the "real" discussions take place. I see some reasoned positive and negative analysis and calls here, but have been warned to be careful relying on the CAPS 'game'. [more]
Thrown back to the 60's! You gotta be kidding me! I wasn't even born then. More all-time highs for DOW and more all-time lows for VanLiew. If you think this is where the story ends, you must be stuck in the 60's too... and... smoking something you shouldn't be!
Keepin' on Foolin',
Climbing score but plummeting accuracy leads to a CAPS score in the low 70's?!?! Bummer! This too shall pass. "All-Star" is my destiny. Short-term setbacks on the companies I own versus the earnings of the S&P don't bother me. I am confident that my selections thus far and the accompanying 5 year investment horizons will result in the coveted colorful Jester's Hat one day being securely cemented upon my cerebral cortex.

Wow! I got hit in the head so hard, not only did I lose my red hat but I am not even seeing stars! A short term setback, I hope. My Scorecard is better than my CAPS. And my real money portfolios are better than My Scorecard. (Not all business ownership positions are listed on My Scorecard and not all CAPS listed reflect exact entry points) [BTW: DG, I got your message about CAPS being for fun, however it still seems a tool worth whetting as the competitive juices have us all wanting to win. Yes?] If this keeps going (he writes out loud as he thinks)... the average hovering at all time highs, my own high flying RB'ers retreating a bit, total returns decreasing slowly and steadily... I better check my greedy gun at the door and keep keep some powder dry. [more]
My head is once again adorned with an awesome little red hat. I beg your pardon, but for the moment I focus on the part two of TMF's mission; To Amuse. I might just barely reach to part three, To Enrich, with this post. I'm probably badly stretching, like too little jam across too much bread, in thinking that I include part one, To Educate, with this one, but, here goes... I certainly have not educated anyone on the fundamentals nor technicals of investing, but maybe on the fundamentals and technicals of life. It all goes together. [more]
