Greetings, Bail, and welcome. You asked:

<<The tech company I work for has a 401k plan managed by Merrill Lynch and crew. It has performed abysmally! I want to suggest other 401k options and managers. Any suggestions? Optimally, I would like to be able to invest my 401k into Foolish Four stocks.>>

Very fewcompanies with 401k plans offer a self-directed brokerage option within their plans. Cost and potential fiduciary liability are the main reasons. If you have no index fund in your options, you can lobby for one. Changes to investment options in plans are tough to come by unless you have other plan participants besides yourself lobbying the employer for additional options. Enlist the aid of your co-workers and perhaps you can bring some about.
