Hi, I am currently employed by Boeing and investing 8& of pre-taxed money into their VIP savings plan. I am 20 years old and want to invest my money aggressively. Boeing matches 100% of the first 4%, and 50% of the last 4%. However they do increase employer contributions above the 8% depending on how much of your plan is invested in company stock.

Currently my allocations are as follows:

International Index fund : 20%
Science and Technology fund: 20%
Boeing Stock fund: 60%

I know that its overly aggressive but I have only been with the company for a couple of months and was planning on changing things up. I would really appreciate your suggestions. Also I would like to keep a decent percentage in company stock.
