I've been studying the components of the RYR portfolios and thing Vanguard's Dividend Growth Fund (VDIGX) is a better choice than the Dodge and Cox Fund (DODGX). The newer recommendation of Goodhaven (GOODX) has too short a history to have a reliable track record.

I generally use the ReturnFinder App in iOs to compare the return on funds. I include reinvested dividends.

Since 2009, DODGX beat VDIGX ba a little - 138% return for DODGX and 115% for VDIGX. But if you go back before 2008 - to May 1 of 2006, DODGX has a return of 58% vs VDIGX of 101%. Overall since 2006 gives a good lead to VDIGX.

Am I missing something here?

Similarly, Warren Buffet only ties the averages during bull runs but he wins handily during downturns.
