Re: taxes

Which of these should be in my tax deferred IRA and which in cash.

Do you mean, which should be in a taxable account, and which in a tax deferred account?

Re: fidelity select switching strategy

You have tried 40 different strategies with real money? And determined they didn't work?
How long did it take you to come to the conclusion any of the 40 didn't work?
Or are you talking 40 different backtests that didn't pan out?

Re: fidelity select switching strategy

Hi Brian,

I have been studying the market for two decades now, and have read literally hundreds of books on it.

I have found a way to beat the s and p by about 3 points per year on average, and the techniques are simple. However, [more]

Re: fidelity select switching strategy

That is probably right, since some months have 30 days, and some have 31, and one 28.

Therefore, 6/17/13 - 4/17/14, would not necessarily give you 210 days.

Re: lynch screen, enormouos cagr

Oops, I left out my reasons.

I can only think of two reasons for this.

1. Keep :[SI PE to Div adj EPS growth 5yr] <= 0.5

lynch screen, enormouos cagr

Hi, I ran the Peter Lynch in keelix, from 1/1/2003 to 12/31/2012, as an annual. I did 12 tests. Starting 1.1, 2.1. 3.1…… The results were outstanding. 49.42 cagr for 3 deep. I then thought, hum, maybe a fluke, and ran it at 10 deep. 35.58 cagr. [more]

Re: fidelity select switching strategy

Ern2win,

You are right. I don't know how I missed that.

I tested it versus yahoo, and the results were a little different. I used adjusted close in historical prices. However, the order of performance was the same, and the [more]

Hi Erwin,

Re: fidelity select switching strategy

You’re probably right. I think I have averaged about 3% better than the s and p. So I am sure some have done much better.

I get cynical, because most strategies I have tried, have done well in backtest, but not going [more]

Re: fidelity select switching strategy

Thanks for your ideas.

I went to yahoo finance, and you can get monthly prices, and could write and excel function like (price now)/(price ten months ago) - 100 to get the 10 month return.
