Actually, I wasn't kidding. I was only concerned with trying to identify the difference in growth needed to make swallowing short-term gains taxes worthwhile. It also seems logical to me that more frequent compounding produces greater CAGR, perhaps even as little as 5 rotations every 4 years. What's wrong with cutting short my one-year commitment and rotating again after only 3 months with a 30% return (if that happens)? I'm certainly no finance expert, but taking the gains while they're available and then committing to another year-and-a-day cycle once again seems worthwhile. If I happen to take a loss one year, I'll just follow the Foolish plan as usual.
