The value of an index like the S&P 500 is that it tells you the overall status of the 500 companies combined. I don't have to comb through it to figure out that they decided to short company number 3645 and thats why the returns are so high/low.

Whats wrong with just holding the 5 star companies month to month? Don't we want pure results of the picks the overall community thinks will beat the market? If theres only 80 5 stars, so what?
