I'm 37. I have another 300k of U.S. stocks in an old Ameritrade account from back when I when I was a gambler... I mean trader.

That's why the high Vanguard bond %.

I have $3000 ready to plop into my recently opened Vanguard account, but I'm not sure which fund to put it into, or if now would be a good time to invest into them in general.

Their website recommended their VSMGX, but I haven't heard much about it, and rarely see people having it in their portfolio.

I'm 21 and plan on pumping money into it for a while to come, if that makes a difference.

thats impressive for a 27 year old not a 37 year old

just because most americans are incapable of accumulating $10000 doesnt make it any more impressive that a normal, rational human being can save

The fund holds 60% of its assets in stocks, a portion of which is allocated to international stocks, and 40% in bonds,
-https://personal.vanguard.com/us/funds/snapshot?FundIntExt=INT&FundId=0914
US Stocks: 36.2
Non US Stocks: 23.4
Bonds: 37.85

60-40 is great, if you're a pussy. At 21 you should be balls-out, like 80-20 or 90-10. Ride the tiger.

But hey, you filled out their questionnaire and Jack Bogle (PBUH) is rarely wrong. So long as you save lots, buy, and hold you'll do fine.

Thanks for the advice, user.

I've been told that since I'm younger, I can afford to take more risks and go more balls-out, which I agree with. This is going to be my first real investment, so I'm just a bit unsure. In the long run this initial investment probably won't matter much, but I just want to be on the right track going into the future.

@Spazyfool
Alternatively you can pick a year to retire and buy the target date fund for that year. It'll automatically shift from (volatile) stocks to (less volatile) bonds as you get closer to that date.

That sounds like a good idea, when I get a real career moving I'll definitely look more into those.

Any recommendations for the higher stock-balanced funds? I'm having a bit of a hard time finding one that has a minimum investment I can reach, I was looking at VRGWX but that's a bit high for what I can put in right now.

The cheapest funds have a $1000 buy-in. Most others require $3000 or up.

If you have enough, you setup a transfer from your checking or savings or whatever and begin your long slow path to riches.

I'm about to buy into VQNPX, it falls within the amount I can invest at the moment, seems to be a good performer, and is more stock-focused.

Before I do, does anyone have any recommendations for alternatives? Is there a clear better choice of fund I should buy instead?

Why would you people dump so much money into over-inflated equity based index funds?

They're going to be hemorrhaging money for the next 5 years.

Notice how they stopped earning 13% annually just about the same time the US Fed halted its QE and bond buy-back programs?

These are artificially inflated asset classes folks.

Index funds were a good idea in 2009.

@takes2long

Companies are maxed out in terms of growth. They've already made all the cuts they could possibly have made and the markets are already saturated.

So it's going to be difficult for the big established market leaders to growth.

We're entering an era of zero growth.
