Post #29234 on the Foolish Four board.>>

I found it a very thoughtful piece, and it was excellently written. It does not, however, change anything for my portfolio for this year just as the recent addition of non-dividend paying stocks failed to change Ann Coleman's mind about running her official FF (RP4) portfolio for the coming year. Of more interest to me will be the ongoing analysis she along with others has taken based on the changes to the DOW stocks. In the interim, I am content to go with what I have this year. As the anniversary date for the annual mechanical trading approaches a year from now, I will reevaluate the strategy. Should change appear needed, be assured I will so announce early on so all are aware of where I stand in year two of this portfolio. As of now, nothing earth shaking enough has been said for me to change this strategy less than a month after it has started. I am totally confident that it's use for one year will do no significant damage or harm to either me or anyone else who also uses such an approach. In short, I don't think the sky is falling just yet.
