Re: I'm declaring a bubble, it's at the peak

I'm going to collect my VTI and VXUS December Dividends, plow them back into more shares and keep buying more over time, I don't care if we're at the top or bottom!

Re: Holding VTSAX only

At the very least I would add VTIAX as your other core holding

Re: Pile of Cash - What to do

37 years old, this pile of cash fell off a truck in Feb, so I"m trying to get back to my 90/10 allocation without making any dumb mistakes or have huge tax consequences.

Re: VIPSX

We're 95/5 stocks to bonds

MWTIX is the only other bond fund available in that 401k. We Index VTSAX and VTIAX for equities 60/40 respectively. Using a few other funds to lean towards small caps and value.

This is a fraction of 1% of our overall pie.
