Hi! I have well over 240k to rollover into an IRA. I am looking at two Fidelity funds. The first is the Spartan 500 Index fund (Advantage Class) FSTVX, which has fairly decent returns and a LOW expense ratio of 0.07!!!!!! The other is the reopened Magellan fund FMAGX which has similar returns, BUT a much higher ER of .54....Granted .54 is low, but its almost 8 times higher than the Spartan fund. Curious for some feedback. I also have additional funds which I would like to put into some international fund, looking again at the Spartan FSIIX international index fund, again for a VERY low expense ratio. Maybe a bond funs also...looking at a 10 year time frame. Thanks, Bill
