I thought it was just a fad... I guess I was wrong, as I have been on far too many underperforms lately. I know we're not supposed to beat ourselves into the ground over mistakes - just learn from them. The thing is: my situation is different because I made silly decisions based on very little information beyond cashflow, current trading price and trading volumes. Well, that and the gossip I have heard/read in various places...


I guess some people might say that's valid data to use, and it is valid data. Just hardly enough to base a stock pick on. Took me several blunders to learn the errors of my ways but I think I'm starting to (slowly) drag myself out of the gutter... I guess since I'm a "5Y-guy" (or 5YG - ya heard it here first I made this up! lol 5YG) we'll have to wait and see how it goes. See you in 5 years! Hehe! Just kidding. The cool thing about CAPS is I don't have to rob a bank in order to practice investing, so thanks very much to the CAPS Community and it's creators. One of the coolest tools I have found on the net! I was about to say: If I could invest in CAPS, I would - but I already am investing in it.

And it's paying FAT dividends. =) I got a little Lightbulb charm now, yaay! I still miss my "Allstar" rating though. Too bad I couldn't keep it :p

Anyway, think nice thoughts! heh


Nuff blabber! Peace guys! I'm out! 8)
