"What are typical/good percentage amounts to invest 401K dollars (ie: 10% foreign, small caps, etc). I have decided to put 10% in FBSCX (ASAF Founders Intl), 15% JOGBX (jANUS oVERSEAS GR), 25% JSCBX (Janus small cap gr.), 10% MARBX (Marisco Cap. Gr.), 40% JCGBX (Janus Cap. gr.). Any opinions would be appreciated!">>>The answer to your question largely depends on your investment horizon and risk tolerance. IMHO, if you have an investment horizon of at least seven years: Index. For Foolish advice on Indexing see:http://www.fool.com/School/13Steps/StepFour.htmIMHO Vanguard, if available to you, is best. www.vanguard.com Look into VFINX and/or VTSMX as your core holdings. For potential higher returns look into Vanguard's Growth Index Fund (VIGRX), and QQQ (non-Vanguard), which tracks the Nasdaq 100. See:http://www.nasdaq.com/indexshares/nasdaq100.stmAnd see the following post for some other interesting index investments:http://www.nasdaq.com/indexshares/index_shares_over.stmThe above link is particularly useful if Vanguard is not available to you. Look into SPY to track the S&P 500. There are interesting tech (XLK) and other sector Spiders (SPDR's). You might want to drop by the Index Fund message board for even better indexing discussions:http://boards.fool.com/messages.asp?id=1030034000925000 Just do your homework, all you have to do is click on the above links and read. Oh, yeah, check this for 401K info:http://www.fool.com/money/401k/401k.htmGood luck.jeffy3
