Back a few months ago there was concern that S&P 500 having too much tech in the index would be hit harder than the total market. Some had the idea purchasing Vanguards total market would be a better strategy.
The YTD as of 4/24/00
S&P 500 index -2.06%.
Total Market -5.75%.
So far looks like that might not have been the case.
I admit I thought the suggestion interesting. Remembering it I checked.
Interesting the better YTD numbers are in
Energy funds
Healthcare funds.
Pondering the total market concept I am wondering if purchasing the whole market is the correct route.
Hindsight is alway viewed in shouldof terms.
