warrl worries,

What this article is saying is that perhaps the S&P500 is now too popular. But they want everyone to adopt a different theory - simply replacing the S&P500 with the Wilshire 5000. The result will be too many people following the Wilshire 5000, degrading its value while the S&P500 regains some of its value.

About 70% of the value of the Wilshire 5000 index is the S&P500. I don't think it matters much which one you hold.
