Has the team analyzed whether there is more value in the All-Stars ratings of a stock versus then entire community? I've been tracking All-Star performance ratings figuring they (being All-Stars) were more likely to get the stocks right. I'm interested in assessing which is the better predictor of performance.

I do know that the opinions of All-stars weigh more heavily than the opinions of non All-stars when it comes to determining a stock's 1 to 5 star rating, if that was your question.

Bonus question, do you value the Star rating (1-5) more than the outperform/underperform relative weighting?

Speaking for me personally, I value both of them. One other thing I like to do is to determine if there is a significant difference between the relative outperform/underperform weighting among All-stars when compared to non All-stars, as this may be an indication of where the 'smart' money is headed. Of course this is just one piece of information which needs to be backed-up with a good deal of additional research, but it is one of the ways I use CAPS data to help me analyze stocks.
