All of this shows what the fool has stood for: do your own investing! There is really no excuse for down 50% in the last 18 months. During this time has he made money from your account, either by buying and selling, thus generating commissions, or by 12b1 fees on mutual funds? What did you own, Enron? Or mutual funds that did? Fire the Advisor! The current place to be is largely small and mid-cap stocks, and definitely in dividend-paying stocks. The S&P longterm is a good spot, but when the market takes a fancy to small caps it generally continues for some time. Do some reading, review your portfolio (come around if you want ideas). If you are considering a particular stock, there may be a board discussing that specific stock. Look around. Nobody cares more about your money and your retirement than you do. Best wishes, Chris
