Thanks so much for the valuable advice! I checked with my employer and found that they don't match contributions at all (which they stated was typical of not-for-profit companies). So I believe that the Foolish Four will end up winning (although I'll do a little number crunching with the formulas you provided.)

One more question: You mentioned that the Roth IRA may be useful. However, I thought that you couldn't sell stocks within an IRA until retirement (59 1/2) without yielding penalties. How could the Foolish Four approach work in a Roth IRA if you can keeping updating your four stocks every 12 months?
