I just recently started using CAPS.  I am using it to test my stock ideas to see how they would do if I bought them.  (I have many more ideas than I do money to buy them.)  These are stocks I would buy if I had the money, (some of which I do already own), and stocks that I would present to my investment club when it became time for me to present again, (and some I have already presented to the club, several of which we have already purchased).  (If you are not a member of an investment club already, I highly recommend forming or joining one.  Good comraderie, easier diversification and a potential source of good ideas for investment.) 

I also use CAPS as a source of ideas for stocks to investigate.  I look at the top players holdings, see what they have done well with and do my own investigation of these stocks.  Since I am only interested in stocks I would buy if I had the money, I only look at outperform calls.   You seem to be doing pretty good overall.  Good luck and keep up the good work.
