No. of Recommendations: 0
I recently did one of those 401(k) allocation things on FinancialEngines
(it's actually linked to our 401(k) website).
Here is the mix they suggested:

25% S&P 500 Fund (I believe this is SVSPX; SSgA administers the fund.)
25% Moderate Fund (index fund-55% Russell 3000 index, 30% Lehman Bros.
Intermediate Gov/Credit Bond Index, 15% EAFE index)
25% Russell 1000 Value Fund (index)
11% Aggressive Fund (index fund-75% Russell 3000 index, 25% EAFE index)
9% EAFE Fund (index)
5% Intrest Income Fund (GIC's and SIC's)

(I have a small-cap in an IRA)

Maybe somebody with more knowledge/experience than me could comment on the mix.
The 1st thing I noticed is that they recommended all institutional index funds and completely left out all the "name-brand" offerings.
