Subject:  New Job: What to do w/ old 401K? Date:  10/4/1998  9:56 AM
Author:  MFSchoeph Number:  5811 of 105970

I just started a new job and I don't know if I should roll my old 401K over directly into my new employer's 401K or if I should put it in a IRA. I need some Foolish advice.

Some information:
I'm currently 27.
20% of my 401K investment was in my old company's stock (which is now down in price).

I currently have a non-retirement Foolish Four investment and I'm very satisfied w/ it's performance. Should I roll my 401K into an IRA and use this strategy? What about my old companies stock?
