Hi Rich

I think you may have misunderstood - your Templeton analogy is misplaced, he invested in an equal-weighted basked. The GG baskets are advocated to be weighted according to risk rating. Sir John implicitly accorded all the same risk and, of course, did very well out of the ones that made stellar returns ... more than compensating for those who went bust.

If you believe that the highest risk picks also offer the largest potential then you get to the conundrum outlined in my posts.

C.
