I've heard my relatives bragging of their investments yielding high returns in the stock market via mutual funds for last year as well as this year. Most of my money is in Vanguard's Total Stock Market Index Fund which has only yielded about 5% year-to-date. Is my money in the wrong place? I realize that I'm holding for the long term, but I don't understand how so many stocks can be up and yet the index does not seem to reflect that. I posted a breakdown of my portfolio in one of my other two posts on this board, if someone needs to refer to it. Thanks.
