It may not last, but I made it to 1000. Yeah

 I like my list of companies and I think they will all out perform over time. But I think I need to do something about my 50% accuracy. I don't really want to get into trading with caps, but perhaps just more attention to some that have fallen more than I expected.

 For instance. LUM got hammered this year. I believe they will survive and make a nice comeback over the next several years. If they rise another 80% + I can break even. LOL. It just seems like a very long term investment, and I do not know if CAPS will exist long enough for that to happen. So the question I need to answer is how to handle that and keep my CAPS as real as possible by not just seeking a score and becoming a trader.
