We would like some recommendations regarding which stock fund to specify for my 403(b) retirement fund. I am a teacher and have the following options through STRS: 1) S&P MidCap Index Fund; 2) S&P 500 Index Fund; and 3) S&P SmallCap Index Fund.

Any suggestions?



You might want to start by reading the Foolish 401k guide. The 403b is not quite the same, but most of the investing advice still applies:

The Fool is real big on index funds, usually the S&P 500 Index Funds. Do your own research, read up on the Foolish 401k's, and then make your own decision. You might put the bulk of it into the S&P 500 Index Fund (75-95%), and a small percentage into the S&P SmallCap Index Fund (5-25%), depending on your risk tolerance. That is just one suggestion, but do your own research through the Fool before making a decision.

Hope this helps.

Taylor
