Looking at my reports from MyFico:
Both EQ and Transunion has on the summary page: Amount of new credit: BAD (The others are Great, Very Good and Very Good, so this stands out!)
and that's based on just 4 INQs!

Every approval I've ever gotten has always listed the following negatives:
1. Too many inquiries - about 10
2. Balances too high relative to debt - always less than 10% but greater than 5%
3. Serious delinquency - was out of the country in 08, and missed 2 or 3 months payments - few hundred dollars
4. Too few accounts paid as agreed - 10 accounts, guess their going with Credit Karma's 24 as ideal
And, this is for approvals from Chase, Citi and Amex respectively with CLs ranging from $10K - $25K. So, I've always taken their automated reasons with a large grain of salt.
To me, it's all rather meaningless.
PS - My scores never change - always receive Fico from approvals as being 725 - 730 regardless inquiries or new accounts.
