I read in a separate post that CAPS was not meant to be a market simulation. I believe that the real goal is to create a site that enhances our collective ability to invest and rate stocks.

 

I do feel that incorporating a method to weight picks (a la CAPS dollars?) would further enhance both the stock rating. I think it would have two advantages over the current system: (1) due to a better understanding of how strongly a player feels about the outperform or underperform call, and (2) due to a superior system for deciding investment savvy (ie individual ratings).

 

There would be no need to try to properly simulate short sells, margin interest and the like. The idea would be to enhance the current system for rating stocks. The promised dividend tracker is another important missing component.
