Greetings fellow fools, I am a long term lurker first time poster. I read the book “You have more than you think” several years ago. At the time I had quite a bit of debt do to some bad business decisions. In the next few months I will be debt free save for my house and want to start planning for retirement. I was really excited about the investment strategy suggested in the book about picking “Obviously Great Companies” and the Foolish Four. I understand that the Foolish Four has fallen into disfavor somewhat. Is the “obvious great companies” still a good place to start or is the general consensus to go in to an index fund? Many thanks for your advice and suggestions.
