I voted Yes, and the gains since have outweighed the 2008 losses, but in mid-2009 I rolled over my 401k into an IRA, and went from a restricted choice of funds to slowly taking control and shifting into stocks from funds. So far the changes I've made have, on average, paid off very well. Of course my transformed portfolio hasn't experience a pullback yet - making money on a rising market is the easy part.
