Some years ago I bought five Vanguard index funds. Put $25,000 in each. Here is today's standings (First the fund's name, then the number of shares, today's price, and the value.)

VG Energy 651.094 52.27 34032.68
VG International 1362.582 52.27 71222.16
VG REIT Index 393.149 107.11 42110.19
VG Short-term bond Index 3038.038 10.27 31200.65
VG Extended Market 1054.884 88.4 93251.75

VEXMX is the clear winner. It hasn't been a bond kind of market, and energy has suffered as the US is producing more now.

... This is as playful as I get. Not a good stock picker or market timer.
