The Motley Fool's CAPS investing service is one of the newest additions to the investing community at, and it's another great way for investors to work together to beat the market. One of the features in CAPS allows users to set up a blog to talk about their picks, investing strategy, market view, or favorite baseball team (if they so desire).

I've scoured through the CAPS blog universe to bring you a generous helping of the top blog posts of the past week.

Starbucks is looking mighty attractive
pencils2, one of the top players in CAPS, has put together a great write-up about the current state of Stock Advisor pick Starbucks (NYSE:SBUX) and why the stock offers a great value at the current price. In the write-up, pencils2 outlines where further growth is likely to come from, how Starbucks stacks up to McDonald's (NYSE:MCD), and what P/E the stock should be trading at.

Goldman's Global Alpha Fund
Fool Tom Taulli, my counterpart in the recent Goldman Sachs (NYSE:GS) Dueling Fools segment, blogs about Goldman's flagship hedge fund, Global Alpha. For a while now, the fund's results have been, let's say, less than inspiring, and the loss of incentive fees has been having an effect on results. In his blog, Tom shares part of a conversation he had with the founder of SMS Capital Management, Steve Sheldon, about Global Alpha.

Just like a pitcher pitching a perfect game ...
CAPS All-Star yippiekiyeh is the big winner of the Fool vs. World contest and took home a cool $4,000 for his troubles. A combination of impressive 89% accuracy and some high-scoring picks such as Marathon Oil, Tesoro, and Inside Value selection MasterCard (NYSE:MA) helped our yippie take the title. Now all he has to do is figure out what to do with the prize.

The Masked Investor
Michaelamanuel brings us a video in his blog that he put together with Dan Rubin (who's also behind many of those great video pitches on CAPS). In the video, Dan gives a mysterious masked investor (who could it be?) the lowdown on the Motley Fool Hidden Gems newsletter. Sure, it's a pitch for the newsletter, but it really cracked me up.

Subprime -- just like "The Blob"
CAPS All-Star iamamartin wonders out loud whether Hollywood tough guy Steve McQueen would be able to help eradicate the continued problems that subprime fallout has created for a number of stocks. The post specifically references the recent issues that the hedge fund at Bear Stearns (NYSE:BSC) has encountered because of subprime.

Tuesday Morning
weiwentg explains why he believes Tuesday Morning (NASDAQ:TUES), a pick on the Income Investor card, has seen some weakness recently and gives an idea of where he believes the stock starts to look attractive again.

David Lereah -- R.I.P.
As the housing party continues to wind down in a big way, and the stocks of homebuilders like Lennar (NYSE:LEN) and KB Home stay stuck in first gear, we are now going to be without the services of the much-maligned former chief economist for the National Association of Realtors, David Lereah. FreethinkerKW has posted a good-bye to David.

And now it's your turn -- get off the sidelines, join CAPS, and start up your own CAPS blog to share your own knowledge and insights with the rest of the CAPS universe.
