100% S&P500. Vanguard mutual fund. I'm 32.

I second this. I’m a few years younger, but also have 100% in S&P when available. In some investment vehicles when not available I pick the lowest fee total stock index fund or large cap fund

like

40% - Large Cap 20% - Mid Cap 20% - Small Cap 20% - International All actively managed mutual funds. They have outperformed S&P 500 so far, but TBH over the long run I think 100% S&P 500 is probably the best bet. I’ll probably switch at some point.

30 - switched recently from 2055 Target fund to 100% stocks in Fidelity . Not sure if I’m doing it right . Helpful if anyone could comment 55% - S&P 500 25% - Large cap growth 20% - Mid cap growth

Thanks for sharing. This may change my entire strategy

I just invested in the Vanguard target retirement fund, depending the time horizon you’re aiming for. This one may be the one for you: https://investor.vanguard.com/mutual-funds/profile/VTTSX It re allocates to less risky assets as you grow closer

70/30 VTI and bonds - 24

Trying to be more conservative. I have other investments that I am pretty aggressive with.

33- 34% large cap equity 25% mid cap equity 25% Russell 2000 10% international <5% bonds

My allocation: 25% Jerome Powell 20% Elon Musk 50% Hopeium 5% YOLO weeklies on EV SPACs, weed stocks, and cruise lines.

100% sp600, I'm 27. Probably will implement dollar value averaging technique instead of current dollar cost averaging soon.

S&P, FSPTX and one biotech fund

12 weeks today. I was hoping I would be able to get DNA genetic testing today but my insurance still hasn’t approved the testing. I have up until Friday to see if it’s approved if not I can get another test but it’s a 90% detection rate ($300). The other test is 97% and out of pocket it’s about $3K. How would you guys proceed?... Just take the $300 test if the other isn’t approved in time?
