My guess is that whoever wrote the original post was requesting
actual investment suggestions for long-term investments.

Really? Let's look at the evidence:

- Title of "401k yay or nay???"
- First statement in the post was "I have recently created a stock portfolio via thru my Fidelity brokerage thanks to the MF guidance"
-The OP's first posts were to the Premium Commons boards - meaning that the OP has purchased MF advisory services

That combination of items certainly did not lead me to believe that the OP was looking for advice on particular stocks to buy - rather the OP was really looking at what type of investment account - 401(k) or taxable - they should be putting their investment dollars into.

Here are mine:

1. Microsoft: 30% of the whole

2. Apple: 30% of the whole

3. Amazon: 20% of the whole

4. NextEra Energy (NEE): 10% of the whole

5. Home Depot: 10% of the whole

And there you have it, my suggestions for your long-term
investments. I am assuming that your all-caps "LONG TERM"
means at least 10 years.

Wow, you are taking a lot of concentrated risk, if by 'whole' you mean your entire portfolio.
