Didn't get it all in. Let me start over.


I know I risk getting a pair of cement overshoes but this doesn't seem right. Maybe someone can tell me generally what is going on.

The question concerns the ranking of the stocks. I am looking at AMSN and MIDD. According to the rules there are three main factors in determining the stocks score. I will go thru them with each stock.

1. The calls for the picks (e.g. outperform or underperform)
AMZN 14 outperform, 4 underperform (these 4 are out of the date range however)
MIDD 25 outperform, 0 underperform

2. The time frames for those picks
AMZN 1st pick 4/18, last pick 5/31
6 picks in April, 12 in May
MIDD 1st pick 4/17, last pick 6/9
2 picks in April, 17 in May, 5 in June

3. The ratings of the players making the picks
AMZN highest rated player 80.37 lowest rated player 3.20
MIDD highest rated player 90.87 lowest rated player 11.87

OK. Why is AMZN a 5 star and MIDD a 4 star?
