I only recently became eligible for my company's 401(k) but have very quickly become rather disenchanted with it. I have chosen its Value & Income fund (DVEIX), but started wondering about its Stock Index fund (DSKIX).

To me, the index fund looks less promising. It's current value is less than half that of the value/income fund and doesn't appear to be performing as well.

Am I being Foolish keeping it where it is? And what about diversifying? I hear a lot about that, but, especially with the funds my plan has to offer, doesn't really look like a good idea.

By all means ask me any questions if the above isn't being clear enough. I'm intrigued to see what others think I ought to do so early in the game.
