rwt99,More aggressive investments you can buy that are passive, low cost, and diversified are the so-called "sector" index funds and instruments. Some of these investments are called "investment trusts" while others are called "depository receipts".They offer the potential of "beating the market" because they are not as diversified. So, they can both win and lose to the market. Here are my favorites:QQQ - up 80% 1998, up 100% 1999 (Nasdaq 100)VIGRX - the "growth" S&P500 index fund.HHH - top 10 internet stocks by market cap. See Note*I would also throw in another investment type, namely internet capital firms: CMGI, ICGE. These are stocks that are very diversified in internet properties. These are not for the faint of heart because they are very volatile.You could also invest in the numerous "internet" mutual funds. I am not partial to these because of the high fees they charge. All the above investments put you right where a 20 year old should be: growth stocks. rustedSoul* - HHH is slightly more costly because it charges a yearly management fee. Read the prospectus on this and the other investments before you buy.
