Well how much work do you want to do and how peeved would you be if you guessed wrong? I wonder how some new Janus investors are feeling after some of their funds went down 30% last year or a few other funds that didn't hold up so well.

My own Roth has a couple of funds in it, one that is my core(VASGX) and one that is a bit more aggresive(VHCOX). I say if you have the guts to go for behemoth risk then look at say the Van Wagoner funds while Oak is a bit more tame and then there are the bland S & P 500 and Total Stock market funds.
