Seems like the time for that line of thinking has passed.
But, I'm still stuck there mentally :)


I too seem to have a unreasonable mental desire to find that seemingly unobtainable set of parameters that outperform. I’m still playing with about 15% in a greatly modified ROE_CASH screen. The screen itself has only equaled the S&P but ‘unmechanically’ I have been spending time looking over the selections, comparing them to their competitors, seeing what the analysists point out and then rejecting around 30 to 40% of them. This works out much better on a very low turn over screen.

Another ~20% are stocks picked from the Fool Stock Advisor.

The other 65% is in an allocatesmartly optimization of 3 different Tactical Asset Allocation models.

But over especially the earlier years MI has made my retirement significantly more comfortable.
