If the benchmark is the S&P 500, it seems like a core position (80-90%) in an Index that mimics the S&P 500 and the remainder invested in individual stocks in an attempt to find one of those 10 superstocks of the decade, would seem like a better strategy.

Wasn't this one of the original ideas of the Fool--"the S&P index, plus a few"? That idea seems to have taken a backseat lately to the methods, systems, and stock-picking that goes on via the Fool's newsletters ...
