OUR collective opinion will gravitate toward the mean - the market....
I've thought the same thing a few times. I've noticed the highest ranking players typically have well over 100 picks. That's an index! No one can follow that many stocks. I have trouble keeping track of 10 (which is why I only own three right now*).
Perhaps that is the lesson of CAPS? It's best to buy an index?
*Actually, my IRA is in Vanguard Index 500, my 401K is split among Fidelity's Contra, Low Price, and Asset Manager, and then I own INTC, MCHP and PTR. These are all things I think (hope) I understand. Hopefully this will serve as an 'index plus' with some indexing plus some growth weighting to give me a little out-performance. Maybe.
