How come you didn't add your CAPS rating to your post?

Do you really need an answer here?

Tom, Dave, and Bill all do have CAPS ports that you can look at and get some idea of their sentiment on a number of companies.

As for tracking analysts - CAPS does this for a good number of those who make public picks. CAPS doesn't mirror the newsletters for a couple of reasons - one is to respect those who pay for the commentary contained (It doesn't track private newsletters from other sources either). The second is that the current sentiment on existing recommendations isn't always currently bullish.

None of the newsletters save MDP is a portfolio. They are stock recommending newsletters and none suggest or expect that one own all the recommendations. You might feel that the numbers you see are misleading, but a CAPS number would be just as useless.

TMF has changed over time to be sure. There is much to miss from the older times, mostly a few of the personalities IMO, but much to be said for it today as well.
