Is that some sort of lockstep relationship? Perhaps in theory….

How’s that formula been working for the average investor over the last ten years?

It allows for the firm and business in general to allow for more cash for greater investment opportunities thorough the year. Felix you have a vigilantly style of journalism that is appalling. You sit on your bully pulpit and drivel out nonsense as if you have experience in the real business world. Instead of receiving a paycheck, how about you start a business and see how little your narrow minded socialistic views net you.

I’m sure there are tax considerations.

Behavioral economics has good stuff on these types of issues.
