I've recently become eligible for a 401(k) at my job and have been researching what the best mutual fund options are for someone 30 years from retirement. Based on the Fool's advice it looks like an index fund is the way to go.

I recently read an article in the latest issue of Money magazine that discussed how the S&P has been changing because more tech stocks have been added while value stocks have been removed, possibly decreasing the rate of return.

In light of these changes over the past year, is investing 100% of your contribution in an index fund still the way to go, or should a portion of your contribution also go into a value fund as well?
