You don't mention what choices you have, but if that option is available you should check it out. Over the long term, an index fund historically has provided better returns than you can get in the vast majority of managed stock funds. Don't have one in your plan? Then the next best bet is a fund that at least approaches the returns of the S&P 500 index over the long term and year by year. Look for the best performing fund over the long haul within your plan. Most of the time, that's gonna be the index fund.Regards….Pixy
