Well, I'll let each person judge for him or herself, but I like to think so - and if CAPS didn't reward having bigger pick lists, the system would likely have been deprived of that piece of information.

Russell,

The system IS deprived of that piece of information - unless you pitched it. And then it can't be taken advantage of with automation, because it's in text form.

A while back I proposed one example of a way you could structure the rationale behind a pick so the system could track it. Being able to do that would add far more value to CAPS, because then you could track stock performance by WHY the stocks were picked, and which criteria show a pattern of success in relation to others.

Your reasoning on WMFI was sound, but who else knew?

Cheers,
AM
