I was very interested in your post from your figures, tme span, and comparison to the index and when you do the review. I'd like to know about the review or comparison and e-mailed PI on that.

I started the dogs system on 3rd November last year so am reviewing it now and may do something from Monday 6th November. Not the foolish four though but the pups of the Dow (the 5 cheapest from the ten) I hadn't come across then. I also included the property trusts.

I also deviated a bit 'cos I sold one on takeover talk and substituted another.

I was thinking too we have the benefits of the franked dividend system that I don't think the U.S. has so should be more suited to us??

Also a possible problem. Boral was demerged into 2 companies in May so I wonder does the system say to wait till May, 2001?
Price Price
3/11/99 3/11/00

Boral (BOR) $2.36 BLD $1.95 ORG $2.04

GPT $2.51 $2.58 (XDiv)

WFT $3.010 $3.15

CSR $3.42 $4.122

5/11/99 PNI bought @$3.47 sold 29/11/99 $4.56

30/11/99 STO $4.35 3/11/00 price $6.15(XDiv)

From the above it would have been better to have done the variation on the theme with the 4 stock system(Aussie Dogs 4 in the aspect system where you leave out out the cheapest) which would have been BOR. Also the property trusts ?? not sure about them.

So so far I've just sold one - PNI a few weeks later.

Any comments or suggestions? Bad or fair results?
