Hey all -

Suddenly I have so much more choice in my 401k, which is great, but now I have to refigure my asset allocation (what a nice double edged sword, eh?).

Here are (most of) my choices:
Active funds -
Hotchkis and Wiley Mid-Cap Value Fund - Class 1
Fidelity Magellan Fund
Fidelity Low-Priced Stock Fund
Royce Low-Priced Stock Fund
Fidelity Growth Company Fund
Calamos Growth Fund - Class A
Fidelity Diversified International Fund
Tempelton Foreign Fund - Class A
My company stock (an S&P 500 technology company)

Index funds -
Fidelity U.S. Bond Index Fund
Vanguard Short-Term Bond Index Fund
U.S. Equity Index Commingled Pool (S&P 500 tracking)
Vanguard Mid-Cap Index fund
Vanguard Small-Cap index fund

(Note: I didn't include the Fidelity Freedom fund, or the fixed income funds, since I am not interested).

I am 25 and won't retire for a loooooong time, so I can take on a good amount of risk....

Currently, my asset allocation is:
55% Fidelity low priced stock fund (small-cap)
35% S&P 500 index
10% comapany stock

For my new allocation, I am thinking:
10% International
5% Vanguard Short-Term Bond Index Fund
5% company stock
20% Large cap
60% mid-cap and small-cap

I am curious to hear what all of you would say about this asset allocation....

Now here's the real fun part: which funds? Does anyone have a strong opinion on any of the above funds? I am most interested in hearing about the Hotchkis and Wiley, Royce, Calamos funds listed and Fidelity Diversified International...

I figure if the active funds aren't great (i.e. like FLPSX) then I'll just go to the indexes, but I'm gonna make sure to do my homework.

Anyways, thanks!
