I would recommend that you diversify a bit. You need to research the fund holdings so you do not double up on particular segments (like large companies).

I am in a similar situation and here is how I did my asset allocation:

Bonds 5%
Domestic Large Comany 50%
Domestic Mid Cap 15%
Domestic Small Company 15%
International Equity 15%

This is a very aggressive portfolio but you have 42 years before you will be needing the money.

You will need examine the holdings of the funds from the prospectuses and other fund information. Eventhough it may be an equity fund, the fund MAY invest in bonds or treasuries.


Happy Retirement Investing
