Hi Linda

We have implemented a Foolish Four RP Strategy in our investment club, though it is too early yet to determine hoe effective it is. We have decided to use the Top 50 though, rather then the Top100. If we get any Trusts in the top 4 picks we ignore them ie Westfield Trust or General Properties Trust as essentially these are companies that are set up to pay higher yields.

I believe you really only have the All Ordinaries to compare it to....though perhaps you could use the All Ord 100 and the All Ord 500 as well.

As to gtg...would it be Capital Tax Gain as compared to Capital Gains Tax which we use here.

Personal Investor Magazine has some articles on Aussie Dogs using a similar strategy to the Foolish Four...but without the RP Variation. Its been backtested 10 years though the data may not be completely reliable. Try their Web Site

Yours Foolishly
