Thanks, Roy. I suspected as much. I'd be better off
investing in equities directly, holding and taking the
capital gains after 18+ months. Dividends, if any,
of course would be taxable.

Unfortunately, my wife's first hubby lost his shirt
in the market in the late 70's/early 80's and the market scares the bejeezus out of her (can't say as I blame her) so it kinda limits my options.

Foolin' around in Silicon Valley,

Mike
