I've been obsessing with similar questions. A signif. % of my (large) rollover IRA portfolio is in VFINX (Vanguard S&P 500 Index Fund), and I've watched its NAV go down in recent months (though it appears slowly on the way up again, as the broad market does the same).I'm not one to try to time the market (and don't recommend that), but have been considering exchanging some of the VFINX for VGSIX (Vanguard REIT Index Fund). It has had a fairly reliable income return for many years, but I haven't a clue as to how I should expect its NAV to do (because I'm too dense to grasp the complexities of the RE market). This probably shouldn't matter over the long term, as long as the income continues at historical rates. So far, it looks like VGSIX would be a good thing for me, and possibly for you. [DISCLAIMER: I've been FIRE for almost a year, and haven't had to draw on my retirement assets yet, having 2 half-sized pensions and early SS checks to live on. So this would continue to be a long term investment.]Do any of the Board's veterans have thoughts on this idea (for you and for me?Cheers and good luck!jtr
