Before I discovered TMF, I was foolish (small f)
enough to buy some mutual funds that have back end loads
for my company's profit sharing plan. That was last
year, so I have until 2003 until they become A shares.
Now that I have the beginnings of a clue, I want to
use that money to invest in stocks (FF, BSP, etc).
Does it make sense to wait the 4 years, or to sell
now? From the article on the TMF page today, it would
seem that selling NOW would be the answer....there
is a chart in the article that shows the cumulative fees would be the same for the next 4 years...But
I'm confused.

BTW, the brokerage fees for investing in stocks with
this plan are relatively cheap for a Wise firm...on the
order of a regular discount broker. So, keeping the
commissions under 1-2% won't be a problem.
