Motley Fool Global Gains / GGM: Global Gains Philosophy

Just noticed today that both CGA and YONG were only recommended one time. CGA still shows a very positive return (+93%) for GG since it was rec'd in Nov. 2008. YONG is down about 55% from the rec in May 2010. Both were noted as best buy/ buy several times over the last 18 months. The lack of a formal re-rec never really dawned on me until now.

This leads me to a GG philosophy question. Where is the line between making a re-rec and repeatedly making the stock a best buy? Lately, GDFZY might be an example. Until recently, it would have applied to CGA and YONG. Is it simply a matter of the new rec being "the best of the best"? Or, is there some reluctance to make re-recs?
