I have read the proposition that if beating the S&P 500 is the objective, buying and holding the ten highest yielding Dow companies, adjusting any sliders, will save time, risk and commissions?
Is this true and how would a new fool go about checking this out foolishly?
Reading some recent archives, some good stuff back there, I came across and want be able to check some outrageous performance claims for a couple of well known mutual funds, the Janus twenty & Fildelity blue chip growth. The claim is that the 98 returns have been 74% & 34% respectivly. Can this be true? Where can I go to check these results myself?
