<What effect will the 18 mos holding requirement have on the Foolish Four formula? Should we buy and hold for two year intervals?>No-one knows yet what the results will be for 18 month holding periods. Fool HQ is working hard to gather and crunch the data. To do it right is an order of magnitude more work that what was needed for the yearly Dow Dividend SpreadSheet. Expect results to be published before my year is up in Jan.For two year holding period see Message 89 in Beating the Dow Board. You can jiggle the numbers to come out with higher CAGR for two year holding, but for practical investing where money is added each year (such as an IRA) the one year holding is better than two.Fooling in the FlatheadTom Kuffel, firstname.lastname@example.org
