This is interesting. One of my screens is a peg26-4 dual semi-annual. I buy every 3 months and hold for six months. If I understand you correctly, I should sell those peg stocks (if any) which have a negative return after 3 months. Since I am, at the same time, selling the expiring 6 month old dual semi and buying a new one, this just makes a little more cash available for the buy (or in my case, reduces my margin a bit). It sounds reasonable.
