Thanks, Dave, for all you do. I, like so many other Fools, truly enjoy your writings and have failed to commend you often enough.

I tend to side with your analysis of the FF models, and ended my own BTD-type investments a year ago.

I think it's ironic that certain mechanical investment schemes have fallen from favor during this year's down turn. Has anyone faithfully followed a FF or BTD method for ten years? If they had, I'd bet they'd be less likely to pooh-pooh the 2000 results.

Retirement is still five years off for me, but my investment style will remain the same well past that time: ever changing as experience and knowledge increases.

Regards,
Lee

And may it well be ever thus. We learn, we grow, we change, and with luck we prosper. We strive for simplicity, yet often get reminded most rudely that simplicity in the investment world remains largely unattainable. And given that reminder, we learn, we grow, we change, and with luck we prosper. :-)
