This thread has been very entertaining to follow. I started a Dogs of the Dow portfolio last month using UV2, but I do not have 100% of my money in this strategy. Just some extra cash I had sitting in a low interest rate. I have gained alot of knowledge from the folders, discussions, and articles from these pages. A more important issue was raised in the beginning of this discussion. At the web-site investorhome.com, the Motley Fool has been accused of "cherry picking." Two portfolio's that significantly underperformed the market and lost start up money were closed. They were called Motley Fool #1: Start date; 1993/ Start Value; $15,000/ Status; Closed, Running with the Market: Start date; 8/95/ Start Value; $50,000/ Status; Closed. If these portfolios existed, why are they not listed along with the Fool Port., Boring Port., etc? Even if they are closed, their value affects the overall performance of the Motley Fool portfolios. Obviously the Gardner's have learned from their mistakes, as reading their books will tell you.
