Many negative years (especially for the RS-26 method). Basically, the regular portfolio does as well or better without the large std dev.Don't try this at home; it can be dangerous to your wealth.-Frank----------------------------Before commenting, I absolutely want to first say that I have not done this test myself. So a good response could be "Try it yourself, and see."But, It is hard to believe these results. I guess I think that the stock that is in the number one period will always be a part of a RS 26wk M5. And will continue to be included as it bounces around in the rankings, both on the way up and down, as long as it is in 5 or higher. So that it will have a lot of influence on the returns for the strategy. Since it will always be a part of the M5 strategy, it just seems unlikely that the strategy can have the returns it does, and overcome the penalty that this #1 stock with the negative returns is putting on the group. But maybe it made such gains going from 5 to 1 in the first place that it makes up for it. Still, it seems odd.Good ReturnsCharley Meng
