New credit ding?

I did some searching and found a few older threads with varying opnions on this one, but if memory serves, I think I remember a penalty of sorts negatively affecting one's Fico score for some time after opening a new account.

 

As it's been about five months since I last opened an account, I'm hoping for a score bump sometime next month...

 

Does that sound right?
