I'm not going for 100% here. If both prediction sets were over 90% accurate in just a few years, I figured that be enough for people to realize how silly this system is.

I understand that companies don't last forever. Thanks to Lucent, turbotrager has one banked loser to go with 289 banked winners. Okay, so he's only 99.7% accurate in his closed predictions instead of 100%. Still enough to make the leaderboard by moving over 3000 rankings higher than a portfolio that used the same stock selection criteria but didn't bank mindlessly
