I have 3 CAPS portfolios. One is my main account (CAPS1), 
another is one I opened up way back when, forgot about, and didnt' touch (CAPS2), 
another is an account I opened when I recommended some stocks to my sister-in-law and told her to hold me accountable (CAPS3). 
Here's a summary of their performance:

       Open          Closed         Date of        Accuracy   Score
       Positions     Positions      1st position 

CAPS1:   63          200             7/8/11         43.48%     75.53 

CAPS2:   23            7             7/8/09         56.67%     92.60

CAPS3:   23            1             1/23/13        62.50%     85.82

Lesson to be learned: Invest in a great business at a decent price and then sit on your butt. Thanks CAPS for making it an inexpensive lesson that didn't involve real money.
