Give the economic turmoil lately I've no idea how to allocate my 401K contributions. Reaching out to see if I can get any good advice. Would love to get opinions on if the following allocations are good or bad?American Funds EuroPacific Growth Fd R4 10% INVESCO International Growth I 10% Columbia Acorn International Z 10% Oppenheimer Small & Mid Cap Value Y 20% Royce Pennsylvania Mutual Fund - Inv 10% Vanguard 500 Index Fund 20% INVESCO Charter I 10% Lord Abbett Fundamental Equity I 10% Returns for all of the above are down signficiantly for the year to date. My fund choices are listed below. The only funds that are up year to date are Money Market, Bond, Speciality and Balanced. I'm thikning of changing my allocation mix but am also thinking that maybe I should stick it out since I have over 20 years to ride it out (I'm 39 years old) and maybe it's not so bad to be buying in a down market. Thanks in advance for any advice! Here are my fund choices:Asset Allocation: Fidelity Advisor Freedom Inc I Fidelity Advisor Freedom 2005 I Fidelity Advisor Freedom 2010 I Fidelity Advisor Freedom 2015 I Fidelity Advisor Freedom 2020 I Fidelity Advisor Freedom 2025 I Fidelity Advisor Freedom 2030 I Fidelity Advisor Freedom 2035 I Fidelity Advisor Freedom 2040 I Fidelity Advisor Freedom 2045 I Fidelity Advisor Freedom 2050 I Money Market Vanguard Admiral Treasury Money Market Vanguard Reserve Prime Money Market Inst Bond American Funds High Income Trust R4 PIMCO Total Return - A Balanced American Funds Income Fund of America R4 Large Cap American Funds Fundamental Investors R4 American Funds Growth Fund of America R4 American Funds Washington Mutual Fund R4 INVESCO Charter I Invesco Van Kampen American Franchise Y Lord Abbett Fundamental Equity I Vanguard 500 Index Fund Mid Cap Fidelity Advisor Leveraged Co Stk I Small Cap Fidelity Advisor Small Cap Instl Oppenheimer Small & Mid Cap Value Y Royce Pennsylvania Mutual Fund - Inv International American Funds EuroPacific Growth Fd R4 Columbia Acorn International Z INVESCO International Growth I Specialty INVESCO Real Estate Fund Inst Stock Micros Systems, Inc.
