The best strategy proved to be combining the original benchmark investing strategy with benchmarks using 5 years of data. The combination -- I'd hate to call it a "nickel and dime" strategy -- compounded annually at a spectacular 29.56% rate.

There have been so many BI variants!

Does this strategy run exactly like the one in the book, except read "5 years" each time you read "10 years" in the book? Or does the "and dime" imply that the ten year guidelines come in somewhere (selling?)

Thanks for all your help here.
