Brian's got it.

Each CAPS-rated stock is assigned a relative numerical rating (only viewable at Fool HQ) from which the star rating is derived. So a stock with a numerical score of 18.73 would be a 1-star since it fits in the first quintile; conversely, a stock rated 83.27 would be a five-star since it's in the fifth quintile. Each quintile has basically the same number of stocks.

Foolish best,
