<<What about conceptually and prospectively using the following assumptions (or whatever you think may be more representative):

Time period: 10 years
Annual Contributions: $4,000 at first of year
Annual Dividend Yield: 1.5%
Capital Appreciation: 16%/yr or 24%/ 18 months
Marginal Tax Rate: 28%
Capital Gains Rate: 20%

I'd try it myself, but I can barely use a word processor let alone a spreadsheet. Just curious>>

I'll mull it over and come up with something in the next couple of weeks just for fun and comment.
