How does Motley Fool CAPS work?

We’re glad you asked about CAPS, our free public platform that allows members to issue Outperform and Underperform ratings like a financial analyst … but — unlike financial analysts — actually scores you and rates your performance!

In short, Motley Fool CAPS works like so:

  1. Players rate stocks.
  2. We keep score.
  3. Players receive CAPS ratings.
  4. Stocks receive CAPS ratings.
  5. CAPS gets smarter.

To find out what all that means and more specifically how CAPS works, go to and click the first link “How does CAPS work?”
