How do you decide when to close a CAPS position?

blesto,

I have decided to simply buy new stocks appearing on the screen, hold stocks that carry over month to month, and sell stocks disappearing off the screen. I'm doing this for all of my screens.

I considered other methods (such as holding stocks for a set period, like a year), and nothing was perfect (even the method I chose). This is the way AAII tracks screen results, BTW.
