A few years ago I divided my portfolio roughly in thirds.
1/3 at Vanguard in 2 index funds
1/3 at TRowePrice in 5 funds I picked
1/3 at Etrade to follow MF Stock Advisor

The TRP funds have done better than the indexes.
The SA selections have done better than if I had done the same cash flow into and out of the market, including costs of newsletter and transactions.

Now there is a MF fund, with a 1.35% expense ratio. Interesting, but expensive.

I was intrigued by the Million Dollar Portfolio when it came up last year but didn't want to move anything. Anyone know how it has done? I am likely going to subscribe and move $ into an account to follow along.

Why would I do this? Statistically over the long term the TRP funds won't beat the index funds. Over the long term, index funds are just that, and I have seen with my own $ where the MF does better.

Thoughts? Arguments for or against?
