Should we and can we which funds?

You can switch your money from any fund to any fund or broker you want, as long as you keep it within the IRA.

As you probably know (if not in fact, than by implication), small company stocks are not 'in' right now (Internet stocks being the exception). Consequently, if a small company mutual fund, like the Kaufmann Fund, is not heavily invested that way, they will not have much to show for it. This may explain some of the Kaufmann Fund's peformance. OTOH, noone knows what the future will bring.

IMVHO, given the way boomers (other than yourselves) are investing, it may behoove you to switch to an S&P500 index fund, an Equity Income fund, a Dividend Growth fund, or a Growth & Income. Or, if you are inclined, the Foolish Four stock portfolio. These are all relatively conservative ways to invest.
