Good grief you left out the best Vanguard fund there is:  Vanguard Total Stock Market.

Good article overall, but some of these are actively managed and not index funds as the caption underneath the title claims.  I also don't understand how they can list only five and overlook great funds like Explorer or Extended Market Index for the more aggressive investor or Wellesley/Wellington for defensive investors.  Not to mention great bond funds such as the Total Bond Market index and the investment-grade funds.  Too many great funds to choose from!

Wellsley Income should be on this list.  Solid as a rock with a nice dividend

You only need three. Total US Stock Market, Total International Stock Market, and Short Term Inflation Protected Bonds. Either 1/3 each or your age in percent bonds and split the other two 50/50. Rebalance once a year and don't ever try to time the market. Congratulations, you just beat every fund manager in history over the long term. Good luck!

I like the Vanguard funds. I have funds and ETF's.

Well, I have four out of the five....no 500 Index....I also have Capital Value, High Yield Corporate, Short Term Investment Grade, Small Cap Growth.

The wife has some of the same along with some Wellington, Wellesley, and Windsor II.

Remain cautious, don't fall for sucker's rallies, because we are a couple of points in the green doesn't mean a thing....Manipulators in control once again down here, we are waiting for the call to accelerate the selling and down we will go again...Scumbags own it all...Be careful.

A better option would be to buy their ETFs. They have much lower fees then their mutual fund counterpart

Looks like higher than average risk in most cases.

They just put the hex on these funds now that everyone knows about them. Watch them go down now.

You all know by now manipulators never give up; after yesterday's aberration they are at it again this morning trying to pull us down once again...Remember, that is how these scumbags make, or a better word would be steal, their money, by bringing everything and everybody down and this morning once again they are picking up where they left off yesterday...We know it is early but they are already taking over on and off the floor...Be very cautious...Sad....More later.
