My employer offers a profit sharing plan which I can contribute up to 8% of my salary. They offer an index fund which I know would be the foolish way to go, but should I put all my eggs in one basket or divide up the percentage and put some in a growth fund? Maybe 70-30? Also, I have a choice of pre or after-tax contributions. This seems like a no brainer, the pre-tax contribution should be the way to go, but under what circumstainces would after-tax contributions be advantagious?
