<< could you fill me in on the way the percentage increase is calculated for the foolish four. I have taken the numbers and I get 25.5% increase. Your number is 31%.

Good Evening Ron and a Foolish Four Welcome to You!

Our F4 Maven, Ann Cole uses CAGR which she has explained in a couple of articles. So check the F4 archives or if you are in a hurry try posting to the DOW Investing Board in the Investors' Roundtable.

I don't trust myself to explain the math adaquately.

Foolish Best Wishes!
