I'm holding a no-load no fee (no comission, marketing, etc.) S&P Index Fund known as VALLX. When I see the two on TMF comparison chart, it shows VFINX as being superior.

A few points:

(1) Morningstar shows the expense ratio for VALLX as 0.84% -- VFINX, of course, has an expense ratio of only 0.18%

(2) Maybe "VALLX" in your post was a typo? VALLX identifies "Value Line Leveraged Growth", which does not look like an index fund to me -- and it does not appear in TMF's comparison chart for No-Load Index Funds, <http://www.fool.com/school/mutualfunds/tables/indextypetable.htm>

(3) Of course, the good news is, VALLX beat the S&P Index for 1998 and 1999 -- its performance against the S&P Index (per www.morningstar.com) is:

1998 1999 2000 YTD
----- ----- --------
+11.1% +9.9% -0.8%
Puzzled but trying to help,
