NO ONE SHOULD INVEST $1 IN THE FOOLISH FOUR WITHOUT REVIEWING THE FAQ ON THE FOOLISH FOUR DISCUSSION BOARD. Failure to do so may result in the sorts of questions which get asked almost every week to the effect of "What happened? Where is my 20% return?".>>

I thoroughly agree.

I fight no rear guard action. Instead, I invest for me -- not you or anyone else. I said at the outset nearly one year ago that until I had given the ports a fair test (not one month as the argument was then, but at least until the first anniversary which has yet to occur), it was too early to change the methodology for MY (note -- that doesn't mean YOUR) money. I also said anyone who elected to emulate any of the three ports did so at their own risk and should not so invest until they understood what they were doing. My stance hasn't changed any in that regard.

As I told another critic a few days ago, the anniversary of the ports is coming up in another month and a half. I will decide then what to do with my money, and not before. When I do, I will have no qualms about announcing my decision(s) to the world.
