000000 Date: 4/2/99 1:13 AM Number: 9617 buying and holding the ten highest yielding Dow companies,This is the simplest Dow Dividend Approach, known as the High Yield 10 or HY10. There is a long history of Dow Dividend Approaches, including a book written by the Fools themselves (The Motley Fool Investment Guide). People here at the Fool have been studying and refining these methods for years now. The best variation that is presently known is called the Ratio Procedure or RP variant.The Foolish investment advice for new investors is to first buy S&P Index funds or spiders - it's a no brainer that will beat most mutual funds and requires no time. Next, if you are willing to spend 15 minutes per year, you can beat that on average with the "Foolish Four," which are presently selected by the RP4 method.This method is a core of Foolish investing - many of the portfolios modeled here use a "core holding" of these stocks. The Fools have a real money portfolio invested in a four stock variation - presently the RP4 variation.
