Just to reiterate what others have said, I'd lighten up on the Boeing stock. If the company tanks, you lose your employment AND retirement.

Out of your options I'd do something like this:

35% S&P 500 index
35% international index
15% bond market index
15% global bond fund

Many would say you don't need bonds at your age and they can make a valid argument. However, bonds TEND to be less volatile, AND they can pay out hefty dividends that when reinvested add up to a nice return over the compounded years.

One more thing. You might want to talk to your HR director or who ever handles the choice of funds and see if you can't get any REIT funds added.
