Fools would suggest you avoid fixed income investments. At your age they are a waste of time. Skip them and balanced funds (which also own bonds) until you get within 5 years of retirement.

I disagree, fixed income is why my 401k is up about 40% from the first quarter of this year. But I actively manage my 401k (and I think I've done well), I'm not the sort that buys and then holds forever.
