What I'd truly love to see is a MF "best of the best" letter, that would allow one to build a portfolio with a core of a few big cap income stocks you could expect to hold for the rest of your life, and supplement that with a value stock, a small cap (growth or value) or a foreign stock as something really good pops up on their radar screen.

They have that now - it's new and called Million Dollar Portfolio. But it is more expensive than the others, so may not be worth it if you don't have enough to invest.

I have used MDP and 2 other letters and have done extremely well. I don't buy every pick, rather I focus on their 'best buys now' lists and trade more often than the 3-5 year hold period as stocks move in and out of the best buys space. But I am investing rollover IRA money from past jobs, so it makes sense to have a few letters. Regardless of how ofter you would choose to trade, you will need to read the letters, follow the stocks, and make sure to stay diversified. If following your own stocks is something you would enjoy, and you have some risk tolerance, the letters could work for you too.
