Sorry, I should've added that I sifted through the full list of 1-star and 5-star stocks, just to compare small groups of equally 30-day-performance-ranked stocks, drawn from arbitrary points among the two different groups. The phenomenon is prevalent throughout the whole list.

It seems no matter what page you draw from, in rank order, that batch of 1-stars are ahead of the 5's over the past month. For instance, under "Hot 1-star stocks", I jumped to page 22, the range is +3.5% to +4%. Under "Hot 5-star stocks", I jumped to page 22, and the range is -1% to -1.6%. I tried a bunch of other pages. The whole list is biased towards 1-stars for the past month. I know this is really only a long term feedback system, but I did this a couple weeks ago and had the same result. A month and a half of 1-stars outperforming 5-stars by this much doesn't seem consistent with the graphs. Maybe I'm just impatient.
