Though i have casually looked at this site for quite some time, I have spent most of the morning checking this out in more detail. First of all, congratulations on a GREAT service. I do have a question though:

Do star ratings take into account recent pps activity? Consider this example.

Stock A and Stock B both trade at $100 and have been given a star rating of 5 through user recommendations. In the next two weeks, A goes up to $200 and B goes down to $70. Does your star rating take this into consideration? Obviously, with all things being equal, I would want to purchase B at $70 and not A at $200 as I "missed the boat" on A already.

Based on the star recomendations, the community basically is saying "A and B are good buys at $100". That would imply that "B is a good buy at $70", however it would *not* imply that "A is a good buy at $200". Does the star rating of A get dinged a bit for this?
