I picked up the portfolios recommanded by VL on January 9, 1998. For the heck of it, I compared to the value on May 2nd, 2000.

Interesting discovery, indeed.

Portfolio 1 (Stocks for performance): 60% of those went down, by 50% in many cases.

Portfolio 2 (Performance and Income): 90% of those went down.

Portfolio 3 (Long Term growth): 50% of those went down.

Is it worth paying so much money for "that" ?

Did you see if the ups are higher than the downs for the number ones that were there on that date in 1998?
Assume buying equal dollar amounts of all 100 stocks ... stay tuned...
