Take the ideas and run. The F4 basically selects BIG companies that pay generous dividends. Great! Now look at some other big companies that pay generous dividends, but look at a few other factors too, such as price (don't buy high!), earnings growth (buy on an increase), debt ratios (buy low), institutional ownership (increase), recent insider trading activity (beware of a flurry of sales), and, most importantly, what's going to happen tomorrow. :-) You can get an amazing amount of FREE info from cnbc, cnnfn, quicken, market guide, e-trade, etc. What I'm doing is buying F4-like companies with the intention of holding them -- but, if they go up, hey, I'm not one to look a gift check in the mouth.
