How does the CAPS system account for the age of a recommendation?

Are ratings weighted so that old ratings are less important than new ones?

Is there a cutoff point so that old "votes" are no longer counted at all in the CAPS rating?

When I see that there are dozens or hundreds of people who have predicted a stock to overperform or underperform, I wonder how many of those predictions were made before more recent events altered the picture. It would seem that only relatively recent predictions would be meaningful.
