Well, let's clear some air, ok? Some investors think mutual funds are the worst way to invest while others are total advocates of them. As for the fund in question, here is some data on this fund:


This isn't a shoot the lights out kind of fund I think but it seems to be an OK growth-at-a-reasonable-price type of fund.

The question for yourself I think is this: Do I KNOW how I want to invest? Keep in mind that the Fool has at least 5 portfolios(Boring, DRiP, RM, RB, and FF) and that to some degree everyone will not have the best investment option(After all, how many people were 100% QCOM last year with its 2,100% return, hmm? I think no one except maybe the workers of Qualcomm that hadn't started investing yet but had options).

Also, with a Roth this is tax-free growth, not tax-deferred, which is worth noting as well.
