Worse yet were things like the "Rule Makers" and "Rule Breakers" portfolios. IIRC these lost 50% of their value and were eventually abandoned. I can't think of any reason that any of TMFs current recommendations are based on anything more solid than RM & RB were.


i can think of a reason they *might* be better ..

i recall looking at 'Breakers' . it was heavy into tech and rode the 'dot.com' bubble up and up. it then puked big time when the bubble burst .. since TMF was into "buy and HOLD", they rode to the bottom ..and some of the port never came back.

MAY be they have a sell strategy now... maybe they don't.
