I am 38 and have been investing in this for 4 years. Here is what I invested in:

Blended Fund Investments The Blackrock LifePath Portfolios LIFEPATH 2050 50% (not a mutual fund)

Stock Investments Specialty FID REAL ESTATE 50% (mostly common stock)

I do have more options but I am unsure if I should change my holdings right now. I know I do not want bonds (too conservative) and I think sticking with the LifePath 2050 based on my age is a good idea. Does anyone have any input for me? I was thinking of maybe changing from Fid Real Estate to Legg Mason Batterymarch U.S. Small Capitalization Equity Portfolio because the YTD return was 9.19%.


However these are all my options:
