AFIN,

Does your employer offer mid-to-large cap stock funds? Any type of equity-income funds? Perhaps you could get into some of these, instead. I hope you're not caught up in the word, "index," while my company offers stock funds whose benchmarks might be the S&P 500, the funds themselves are not listed as "index funds."

Beyond that, at your age, while still young, I would probably diversify my contributions across both equity and more conservative funds, perhaps bonds.

Regardless, of what funds you have available, as long as they're generating positive returns, the tax-defered advantages of a 401k are hard to beat.
