The most important idea in investing is to make sure that you are comfortable with your choices now, even if you will regret them later ;) <g>.

Your choices seem perfectly reasonable. Have you looked at the long-term returns for the Stock & Growth accounts over the last 10 years?

There are two schools of thought on investing your nest egg.
1) If you can't bear the thought of a taking a temporary loss in a down market, by investing all your money at once, then invest it monthly.
2) If you can't bear the thought of missing out on gains in an up market, by investing your money monthly, then invest it all at once.

As you can see, the choice is truly yours, since no one can reliably forecast the market direction, in the short term.
