"CAREFUL!! Yahoo data is both split-adjusted (good) and dividend-adjusted (!?!?). This makes charts from MSN and Yahoo not comparable." - mklein9

I think this would be a wonderful discussion for the next BMW Method Conference. Maybe Mike can run some typical charts from last week's data and some from the Yahoo dividend adjusted data. The comparison would be very interesting to me. If we analyze some old blue chips w/decent dividend with some high growth w/o dividend stocks, we might get a better look at how the dividends affect the price performance over time.

Am I the only one who thinks this is worth doing? How about it Gary?
