Man, my score today is a negative 102.  My ranking 26.  I don't get it.  I did my research before making my picks and I've held on to many of them for over 8 months now, trying to follow conventional wisdom that long term is the smart way to invest.  I know 8 months isn't really that long term, but for CAPS it's an eternity.

 I suppose many of the poor-performing picks on my list could bounce back in the next year, but who knows?

 I'm basically better off just buying an S&P index fund than I am managing my own money.  How depressing.
