Orthodox response:
Trade what and when the backtest did.
Only then can you reasonably expect your results and the ongoing simulated results to converge.

Geeky response:
Run Radiscript again with the revised price and see if it's still a top pick.

Practical response:
Don't worry about it, just buy it, it will all disappear in the wash.
Imagine you have been running the screen for ten years.
Will a percentage point one way or the other on one pick ten years ago be what
makes the difference between your being happy or disappointed with the end result?

Exceptional response:
Make sure it's GCI, not GNI.
GNI is a very special fluke, do NOT buy it.
