The Motley Fool's CAPS investing community is a great way for investors to work together to beat the market -- and maybe get famous while they're at it. Among its features, CAPS lets users blog about their picks, investing strategy, market view, the upcoming football season, or whatever.

As the CAPS blogosphere continues to grow, players are adding more great content on a daily basis. To make it easier to find some of the gems out there, I've dug through the past week's posts to find some of CAPS' best insights. Of course, with room for only seven posts here I can't possibly cover all of the great stuff in the CAPS blogosphere. When you're done here, I highly recommend heading over to CAPS and checking out what some of the other investors have to say.

Has Bill Miller really gone insane?
The bailout of Fannie Mae (NYSE:FNM) and Freddie Mac (NYSE:FRE) left a lot of equity and preferred equity holders with little more than bupkes. Among the bupkes-holders is Legg Mason's (NYSE:LM) Bill Miller, the wunderkind-cum-dunce when it comes to fund performance. In a recent blog, CAPS member MKArch dissects Miller's belief in Freddie and the way that he regularly goes against conventional wisdom. Click through to MKArch's blog for the full take.

Bought more Chesapeake and Compass Minerals
CAPS All-Star weiwentg isn't ready to give up on natural resources. Though the sector has been on shaky ground lately, this investor sees good prospects ahead for natural gas and sulphate of potash (a specialty fertilizer), and thus has been bullish on both Chesapeake (NYSE:CHK) and Compass Minerals. Why is he so bullish? Well, I'd ruin it if I told you, so why don't you go to his blog!

Investing wisdom from a 3-year-old
What does a toddler know about investing? Well, as Imperial1964 points out, his 3-year-old knows all she needs to know about the importance of dividends. Head over to Imperial1964's blog for a story about how a Boeing (NYSE:BA) dividend check and a curious daughter can remind us how great it is to get paid by our companies.

If this doesn't flash "warning" ... nothing will!
How bad is it for U.S. banks? If you ask CAPS blogger alstry -- and, apparently, Warren Buffett -- it's pretty darn bleak. CAPS member alstry recently blogged about an AP article disclosing that Kansas Bankers Surety, a Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRK-A) (NYSE:BRK-B) company, is going to stop insuring bank deposits over the FDIC's $100,000 limit. Check out alstry's blog for the full rundown.

HANS short interest
Who hates Hansen Natural (NASDAQ:HANS) so much? This is the question that CAPS blogger rknapton tackles in his most recent blog post. Head over to rknapton's blog to find out what he thinks about the overwhelming amount of shorts hanging around Hansen.
