A player's rating indicates his percentile rank in CAPS. wax is outperforming % of all CAPS players. A player's score is the total percentage return of all his picks subtracting out the S&P. A player's accuracy is how often that player has made correct predictions.

To calculate a player's rating, we take 2/3 of his score percentile and 1/3 of his accuracy percentile. For further information, read the Player Ratings section of the Help page.

Average Pick Score is a player's total score divided by the total number of picks (active and closed). It represents the player's average return after subtracting out the market's performance.

Average Pick Rating is the average stock rating of a player's total picks. Underperform picks are flip-flopped, so a underperform call on a one-star stock is treated like an outperform call on a five-star stock. This rating reflects how closely your picks are aligned with CAPS ratings.

What's the deal with N/A?
You need to have at least seven active stocks in order to see your calculated accuracy and total score.

Fair Warning
As I noted I last week I would be doing, I was able to increase my position in Tidewater during the week, adding 2000 shares. Over the past several years I have been positioning the portfolio in a manner consistent with exiting the markets altogether, given that my working life is nearing its end. But I am now rethinking that decision, and considering adding some longer term additions to the portfolio. Stay tuned.
