I have an old mutual fund from 12 years ago (SLMCX) that was a front load (5.75%!)fund. It's expense ratio now looks pretty good (1.38%). I would like to purchase FOOLX, which is not a load fund, and has a slightly higer expense ratio of 1.43%. Since I have already paid the front load into SLMCX, is it better to keep that fund, even though I do not like it as much as I would like to have FOOLX? This is in a taxable account.
Sell SLMCX and buy FOOLX
Hold SLMCX - you already paid the big price as a front load!
Sell a little SLMCX and buy a little FOOLX
