Ok.  I am memorializing my goals now, so that I can return to them later.  My goal in CAPS is to learn as much as I can about how to pick, so that my return will be above the market.  I will strive to learn reasons for picking rather than just getting lucky picking for irrational reasons.  

 The hope is to later apply these lessons to real live picking.  To that end, I will not pick many underperforms, simply because I do not believe I will be shorting stocks in my actual portfolio.  Shorting seems far riskier to me, what with the margin to deal with.  I will underperform a few stocks, just to be sure my rational is correct though.
