Well, evaluate your situation and decide whether you want growth or income. We have a much smaller amount that's mostly invested in an index fund and in several specific stocks. Only a couple give us income -- dividends amounting to oh, less than $100 all together for the year, I think. But growth has been great -- one of the stocks more than doubled, most of the others did quite well (one disappointment, which we sold at the end of the year to get a small loss). Then again, we won't be retiring for 20+ years, probably, so growth is a priority for us.
