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

Mindless banking ... sounds like my financial institution.

Well, the way I figure it, with the dead weight of all my "stop loss" picks, I should be able to match turbotragers 97% accuracy - oh, in about 10,000 picks and 2-3 years from now. I can hardly for that time when it will be a true horse race. :)

Cheers,
