re: Vanguard Fund Allocation advice - PlanoPrivateer
The 3 funds that you listed you have practically zero international exposure. Sure many of the companies in them do business internationally. If you want some international check out VWIGX. Vanguard has others but I like this one. Full disclosure, I don't own any at this time. I do own some indi...

re: Vanguard Fund Allocation advice - PlanoPrivateer

The top 10 represent 14% of the VTSAX and 18% of the VFIAX total holdings. I don't know for sure but I would guess that the approximately 500 stocks in the Index 500 m...

re: Blue Buffalo IPO - PlanoPrivateer
Blue Buffalo is a fast growing company. That being said one of the leading companies in this industry is going after them for false advertising. I don't know the details but I believe is has to do with Blue Buffalo's claims about the ingredients in some of their foods. I am hazy on this so please...
