Are these the ones you are talking about? If so, lets go through them--

Top Pick lets you designate the stocks in your portfolio you think will do best. I'm not sure how this affects scoring but I presume you get extra points for correct picks.

Start is the date the stock was added to your portfolio

CAPs rating is the star rating assigned by CAPs players to that stock

Call is will the stock outperform or underperform the S&P 500. It can be up or down. Down is the equivalent of selling short.

Time Frame is the time you selected for the indicated performance

Start Price is the beginning share price (its adjusted for splits and reduced when dividends are paid)

Today is the share price today (shown over the percentage change from yesterdays close). Percentage figures are color coded green for gains and red for losses.

Stock gain is the % change of todays price vs your start price.

Index gain is the % change in the S&P 500 for the same period.

Score is the difference between the stock gain and the index gain. Your composite score for the day is used to assign your rank vs all other players that day and is indicated by your Player Rating at the top of the page and that determines the color of your Fools cap.

End date shows the date you ended the position on the Ended and All Scorecards. Use the End button to discontinue a current holding in your portfolio.

Pitch allows you to post comments on the stock such as why you bought or think it will decline etc. Press the add button to add new comments.

Ask away if you have more questions.
