I would own these indexes instead of the S&P 500. The S&P is extremely top heavy. The 4 largest companies (Micorsoft, GE, Cisco, Intel) accounted for over 30% of the total return for the index. I think it is a good strategy to broaden the investment selection and spread out the weighting by investing in a broader index. The Wilshire will accomplish this. The Russell (I believe) concentrates on the smaller cap stocks. A good fund to lookm at is the Fidelity Total Market Index.Of course if the market keeps trading along a narrow path where large cap growth stocks outperform all others then the S&P 500 will continue to outperform the others. However, the past few years of this type of trading is not typical of past market behavior. Whether this continues or the market starts to broaden out is anyone's guess.Bill
