Subject:  401k Diversification? Date:  9/24/1998  1:43 AM

After starting read "The Unemotional investor" I started to wonder the best way to diversify my 401k portfolio. There are several mutual fund options one of which is in my employer Corporate Stock Fund. Should I stick to that or should I break it up according to an asset allocation model? Or should I stick to the one index fund it offers? My employer matches dollar for dollar up to six percent and I can contribute and additional 4% pre-tax. Should I do this or should I contribute only up to what they contribute? I have just become eligible this month and I am very confused now. Any help or advise is greatly appreciated!
