<<The foolish four is discussed as one change per year. In another place 8 switches are mentioned. The list changes frequently. What's a fool to do. Invest once at a random time or follow the changes??>>

Yes, the selected stocks can change every day. But once you begin the process, on any given day, you should disregard those changes. You'll only have to go through the process and buy new stocks after one year (and a day).

This can be portrayed as "one change a year." But that one change might involve selling two of the Foolish Four you're holding and replacing them. (Perhaps two of the stocks will remain on the list and therefore you'll just hang on to them.) So it really involves two sells and two purchases. It could be as many as four sells and 4 buys.
