I have read the proposition that if beating the S&P 500 is the objective, buying and holding the ten highest yielding Dow companies, adjusting any sliders, will save time, risk and commissions? Is this true and how would a new fool go about checking this out foolishly? Reading some recent archives, some good stuff back there, I came across and want be able to check some outrageous performance claims for a couple of well known mutual funds, the Janus Twenty & Fildelity blue chip growth. The claim is that the 98 returns have been 74% & 34% respectivly. Can this be true? Where can I go to check these results myself?

I like to go to Quicken.com at:
http://www.quicken.com/investments/mutualfunds/
and enter the fund symbols in the upper left-hand corner to get quotes and other info. Check out the Morningstar and Value Line profiles. Janus Twenty's symbol is JAVLX, and Fidelity's Blue Chip Growth is FBGRX. You can also analyze these funds at Smartmoney.com:

or use their fund analyzer at:

but make sure you have Java enabled on your browser.
