That's a lower case 'f'. I just opened an IRA brokerage account with Datek with every intention of using the foolish four strategy mentioned in the Motley Fool Investment Guide. As a first step in research, I thought I'd check the discussion boards. Imagine my dismay to discover that the foolish four has not only failed to outperform the DOW, but as a result undergone transformations. I'm a young, risk-tolerant investor with little time to monitor my investments. Should I just buy the index? Are the Dogs of the Dow Dead? Back to Mutual Funds? I realize there's no panacaea, I'm just looking for guidance in my research, not answers. Thanks in advance.
