I was talking about the Dow Dividend where one takes the bottom five companies on the DOW, throws out the bottom company and invests with these four hoping that they will produce around 20% over the next 20 years according to the book.

If you haven't read it yet, they drop the fifth stock and double up on the fourth. They call it the "Foolish Four" approach.

I don't know if this is what you were talking about that didn't work after being back tested.

This is exactly what I'm talking about...they no longer follow this strategy. It doesn't work as advertised.
