<< Does anyone know how these theories (HY10, BTD4, BTD5, FF) have held up

against the S&P 500 in 1995, 1996, and 1997 (1st eleven months)? The

time period after the Dogs strategies have hit center stage. >>

Probably not as good as the S&P.

S&P returns.

1984 6.27

1985 31.59

1986 18.64

1987 5.28

1988 18.64

1989 31.49

1990 -3.17

1991 30.55

1992 7.63

1993 9.99

1994 1.31

1995 37.43

1996 22.96

1987 23.47 through 10/31

However I do not believe in annuities. The equity market has gone up 10.5% over the last 70 years. I would have used your original 100 k and 10.5% as an minimal return with no draw downs and never run out of money.
