haven't posted in a while. I am 57 years old and am self employed. Most of my retirement money is in SEPS and I'm just opening my second Roth.

I am wondering about moving the 30K i have in Vanguard Health Care Fund which is a stalwart, just trudges ahead beautifully to the Vanguard Energy Fund which is doing amazingly well.

Other investments are: about $35K in 3 stocks, $15K in Dodge/Cox Stock funds, $3K in D/C International, 25K in Franklin Gov. Sec., 18K in Vanguard Strategic Equity and 10K in Vanguard Reit Index.

I also plan in investing $4500 in my new 05 Roth in Canadian Trusts, which have amazing dividends.

My concern with moving the Health Care into the Energy Fund is I will be losing diversification due to being tempted by the huge returns in energy right now (actually the fund has done incredibly well over the last 5 years).
