Re: I need some commets on my portfolios

I'm a wee bit confused. You have a 70% stock/ 30% fixed allocation but no bond? Then CDs? Money Market? Also, you have a list of ETFs but no percentages of what you're invested in. Percentages would help. But looking at what you have, it looks as though you have a lot of overlap between ETFs. I wou...

Re: VICSX (Intermediate Corp) vs VCIT (ETF share class)

This is a tough call I would think. I do not own either, but I own both share classes of the short-term fund: VCSH + VSCSX. I like the convenience of VSCSX because I have it in set-and-forget mode. Its dividends are automatically reinvested at the end of the month like other bond funds. I like VCSH...
