Greetings, Frank and Penny, and welcome. You asked:

Is this a foolish or wise portfolio of mutual funds?:
IRA: Vanguard Asset Allocation, Vanguard Equity Income, Vanguard Index Growth.
Non-IRA: AARP Growth and Income, Paap America-Abroad, Mutual Beacon Z
Me, 66, wife, 59. These funds represent half of our net worth. Other half our home and some cash.
Your comments, fellow fools:


That's the wrong question. Instead, you should ask yourself, "Am I comfortable and satisfied with this portfolio?" If the answer is positive, then it's the right one for you. Fools by and large have an antipathy to mutual fund investing. We believe for the long term if you're going to stay with mutual funds, then you'll get the biggest bang for your buck in index funds, particularly when it comes to stocks. However, there's nothing the matter with fund investing if that's your style. If you're satisfied with your mix, you don't need a Foolish or a Wise opinion. It's right for you.

Regards….Pixy
