The initial Rollover value was approximately 30k in 1997 and it is now close to 70k in 2000. Now to the "novice investor" (which I am), that appears to be a fairly decent rate of return considering I haven't contributed a dime since rolling it into an IRA. My concern however is that I may not be getting the maximum "bang for my buck". Should I be considering other funds available through Fidelity or just hold on to what I have? OK, I'm no Peter Lynch, but by my calculations that is a 133% increase in three years. 44% per year. <soapbox mode on >Am I the only one that remembers the stock market before the 1980's? 14% interest rates? Are we so spoiled that 44% a year is a bad thing? Does everyone *really* expect this to continue like this forever? 44% per year is a great rate of return, be happy for it.</soapbox mode off><sound of head banging on desk>I feel better now..thanks. I didn't mean to pick on you...just had to get that off my chest...
