Well, if you want an index fund, why should it be the S&P? Look at a chart of IWM, QQQ, and SPY. IWM does the best. QQQ is second.

If you want a list of stocks to consider, look at the "Overlaps" on the MI boards. These are stocks picked by some of the MI systems. They make good candidates for consideration.

So far as MF advice on stocks, I once (quite some time ago) followed their model portfolios. They bought 3COM and rode it for a double. Then they rode it down and finally sold it for a loss. "Pathetic", said Eeyore, "and no better from this side." Anyway, I gave up on following their stuff after that. I did make money on 3COM, though.
