Welcome to the ASX50 Foolish Four RP Method. This is a trial run to see how
it stacks up as a mechanical method for investing on the ASX. 

I started this one as of 26/6/2000. The 4 stocks I picked was 2-5 in RP order
excluding Resourses and Property Trusts. The order for the end Friday 24/6
was from 1st to 5th was PDP, GMF, QAN, CSR & AMC. Since PDP had the lowest
price and highest yield I dropped it according to TMF. The order for end Friday
1/9 is as below. The left hand column includes resources and Property Trusts.

ETRADE charges $29.95 commission + Tax unless you are a frequent trader then
it is $19.95. I added $30 per trade.

For the month of August this ASX50 FF hit a high of 10% before coming down to
5.71%. It is just in front of the All Ords which has risen 5.32% since 26/6.
The figures below is from end of trading 1/9/2000. 

Happy Investing

Hi - having been just introduced to this board I'm ploughing my way through all the posts when I came across this one. I've run a crude form of MI screen based on the Oz Top Ten since the beginning of the year so I was pleased to see that others on this board are of a like mind. I've thought for some time that Oz stocks would be ideal for MI and given the smaller number of stocks than the US market would be simpler to identify those heading for the stratosphere (only joking).
I currently have about half my assets in Oz stocks and the other half in the US (some MI, some LTBH).
