Where/how did you calculate the impact of the coupons/interest paid (positive), taxes (negative), etc? Most do that with a stock (reinvestment of dividends), especially if you're considering the impact of inflation.

Bob,

I don't work for the Motley Fool. I work for myself. I receive no salary from them. However, if I'm remembering the User Agreement correctly, they claim that anything I publish belongs to them. Well, since that might be the case, I never publish the good stuff. I'll merely set up a problem and then let each person work out the answers as they see fit. But I will offer you this hint.

There once was a man who went to a computer trade show. Each day as he entered, the man told the guard at the door:

"I am a great thief, renowned for my feats of shoplifting. Be forewarned, for this trade show shall not escape unplundered."

This speech disturbed the guard greatly, because there were millions of dollars of computer equipment inside, so he watched the man carefully. But the man merely wandered from booth to booth, humming quietly to himself.

When the man left, the guard took him aside and searched his clothes, but nothing was to be found.

On the next day of the trade show, the man returned and chided the guard saying: "I escaped with a vast booty yesterday, but today will be even better." So the guard watched him ever more closely, but to no avail.

On the final day of the trade show, the guard could restrain his curiosity no longer. "Sir Thief,"' he said, "I am so perplexed, I cannot live in peace. Please enlighten me. What is it that you are stealing?"

The man smiled. "I am stealing ideas", he said.
