Dividends are reinvested in a mutual fund. ETF - no reinvestment. Makes a ton of difference.
Here are my equity (stock) funds:
VDAIX (dividend appreciation)
VFIAX (S&P 500)
VDIGX (dividend growth)
VEIPX (equity income)
FLPSX (Fidelity low-price stocks).
Balanced funds (i.e., 60% stock and 40% fixed):
Target 2010 (VTENX)
Target retirement income (VTINX)
Fidelity 20% stock (FASIX)
Fixed income (Bonds):
VIPSX and VWITX (both listed on "Money Top 70"list
VWESX (long term investment grade)
VFSTX (short term " " )
PTCIX (government bond)
FSICX (multisector bond)
some more to consider - VHDYX, SMVLX and BBTEX (equity), PTTDX, SXFIX and PAUIX (bond)
I have 18 funds, and experts say you should only have 6-12 so I need to do some research.
