I'll soon be in the position to roll my 401k over to an IRA and need to figure out where to put it.Percentages are of the total portfolio value401k:Dreyfus S&P 500 Index fund (PEOPX) 34.4%Roth:Dodge & Cox Income fund (DODIX) 6.2%Dodge & Cox Balanced fund (DODBX)2.2%Taxable:Mairs & Power Growth fund (MPGFX) 3.4%Dodge & Cox Stock fund (DODGX) 26.9%Vanguard Total Stock index fund (VTSMX) 25.4%Cisco (CSCO) 1.5%I don't/won't/can't pick individual stocks. My Cisco holding is to remind me of that. It's up 67.9% for the past year but down a total of 68.5% since purchase! I plan to retire in just under 40 years and do not plan to use any of these holdings for purchases before retirement.I've thought about the Roth holdings (won't be eligible for a Roth for much longer) and will likely leave them as is with future contributions going to DODBX instead of switching both funds to their Vanguard index equivalents. The way I interpret the Vanguard website even with the higher expense ratio DODIX approximates the return of VBMFX and I don't have to deal with the confusing little Vanguard blurbs about fees here and there. The same goes for DODBX vs. VBINX. Comments on this approach are of course appreciated.Regarding the 401k I would like to roll that over to a low-cost index of some type. Should I open another VTSMX position? Should I split the holding into a domestic fund plus an international index fund/REIT index fund for diversification? After "taking control" of my finances during the wild ride of 2000 that's still left me about $14,000 in the hole I prefer a moderate risk approach to investing.
