RJ and Trick both noted that their Cash investments have yielded better returns than those of the Fool.

When preparing my mock RB column, I did notice that the Fool's cash balance doesn't seem to change except when they make a purchase. They don't seem to have their cash in an interest-bearing account; or they don't include any interest in their portfolio. Who knows why - they use the RB port as a model, so maybe they want to keep the demonstration results "pure" without including yields from non-equity investments, notwithstanding the fact that it's a real money port. I thought that an infinite P/E of 1/0 was funnier, though.

BTW, I greatly appreciate all the very nice responses I received from those who enjoyed the parody. Glad that I was able to make some people smile a bit on a bad market day.
