I would jump all over the DODBX-it is currently closed to new investors.

Yes, I agree with you completely and am thinking of inreasing my 10% stake in that fund.

Right now I am leaning towards the following:

DODBX - 20% (increased from 10%)
RERFX - 20% (increased from 0%)
VINIX - 25% (decreased from 40%)
VEXMX - 25% (decreased from 40%)
Stock - 10% (unchanged)

While some people have questioned the investment in either/both VINIX and VEXMX, I have just been really pleased with my Vanguard funds and am comfortable sticking with them. But I decreased the allocation to those two funds such that I can increase the Dodge & Cox Balanced Fund and introduce the Eurpacific fund.

I truly appreciate all of the comments and suggestions that have been shared. It has helped as I continue my research into each fund.
