Okay, so I've set up my discount brokerage account, I'm the process of selling off my mutual funds, the wife and I are dumping everything we can into our IRAs, and I want to invest an additional 30K (20K of it in 1999) in a Foolish Four port.Is there a better portfolio method (IE DRIPS which to my understanding are held longer) that offer increased tax benefits? To my calculations, if a F4 port is rolled every year, and if it reaches its calculated average of 25.9% returns,I'll keep after taxes about 20.72% of it. Have I done the math correctly, is there a more beneficial way to do this. Any suggetions?
