Lazy investing

I found this idea from the aritcle Beat the Market with Lazy Portfolios on the GetRichSlowly blog.

The idea is to invest in a portfolio of simple index funds. These simple investment portfolios have been outperforming the S&P for the past 6 years.

The guy that wrote about them first is Paul Farrell and his latest update on them is posted in the article

'Lazy Portfolios' annual update for recession '08!

I'm interested in the simple 3 fund portfolio named 'Margaritaville Portfolio'. Its made of 33% each of Vanguard Inflation-Protected Securities, Vanguard Total International Stock Index VGTSX and Vanguard Total Stock Market Index. The returns have been 1yr = 10.87%, 3yr = 10.93% and 5yr = 14.45%.
