I suppose any formula is "good" as long as it's mathematically sound. What other investing formulas do you feel are worth consideringWhether it makes economic or mathematical sense is debatable, but I can certainlyrecommend the following formula because it makes money year after year:- start with a good broad selection of stocks, e.g. Russell 1000 or 3000- sort them by product of dividend yield and earnings yield.This implicitly skips all stocks not paying dividends. - keep the best 20-50 stocks on that sort. Best 35 is traditional but it doesn't matter much. - of those, buy the few stocks that have risen most in price in the last year or so (12-16 months)It's best to ignore any price change in the last 2-6 weeks or so, but not critical. Anywhere 3-10 stocks is good, but 4-5 is the usual choice. Hold those stocks for 3-13 weeks and repeat. A monthly check is traditional but again not critical. I've been using every 2 months lately. The picks don't actually change that often. This would have returned around 20%/year since 1986, including the last decade which is entirely after the method was popularized. Jim
