Sorry, I missed a category of investor for whom index funds might be a good bet.

How about EVERYONE??

But there are funds out there (18 at last count) that had consistently returned over 20% CAGR for the last 1, 3, and 5 years. Maybe you should talk your plan administrator into including one of those in YOUR plan.>>>>

Hmmm, just pick one or more of the 18 out of 12,000 or so managed equity mutual funds (0.15%) and BINGO!! You're there! Wow!

Forget that, I have an easier way: out of 9277 active companies on the three major US exchanges, SIMPLY pick one or more of the the 14 stocks (0.15%) that have appreciated more than 2123% over the last year and BINGO! It's FAR BETTER than picking the right mutual funds.

Here are the magic 14 stocks: SUHG, JOYG, WGII, ANCPA, CTRLY, AWIN, GHVI, ASLC, CGAM, ITEB, MNCP, MMUS, IPSU, and CQB.

Tell YOUR plan administrator that you want one or all the above stocks in your plan <grin>!!!!!!!!!

And why stocks? Just pick the 6 or 8 (I can't remember because I never play) correct numbers on the Powerball lottery and you can forget about stocks for the next 5 generations of your family.


Hey, I think you're on to something there galeno. I've always thought lottery tickets were "the forgotten asset class". <grin>
