Just regret buying minimal shares as I bought EXC for some dumb reason at the time too

Did also get LNG at the time so not bad but hindsight is 20/20

My investment is small too, but I'll take it all.

Would have been a pretty goofy strategy if you thought it was going to go down. smile.gif

I know right? I just feel like this one has been battered as of late, so now's a good time for a long play on this one.

^Really? I got out of it mid year at abut 50.49 albeit I have a meager SIMPLE IRA and it was my only allocation at the time. I took everything out and reallocated to AMCPX..

edit: I actually moved part of it out back in Feb then the remaining in July. Now everything is in AMCPX.

Not really sure what I'm doing TBH shog[1].gif

AMCPX is a good one. You might want some international exposure to complement it, however.

Actually I'm not really sure what I'm doing either TBH!

The return YTD as well as historically doesn't look too great and it has a higher expense ratio. At least that's how I figure. Plus I prefer the larger exposure to domestic markets ie tech

Any thoughts on Transocean (RIG)? Stock price is at a 5 year low.

You're right -- .84% is a bit costly, and there are better performers out there (I also like Matthews Asian Growth & Income but their expense ratio is even higher than AEPGX). It's good to have a large exposure to domestic markets -- personally I would say 60%, and then put 30% in an international play (how about VEU?) and the remaining 10% in Emerging Markets. You don't want to have all your eggs in one basket - even if that basket is domestic markets, because the domestic market is not going to return anywhere near the 15% it has over the past five years going forward.

Yeah I have half a years worth of student loans left to pay off, then, will contribute more aggressively to my retirement plan. I did that the first year when I started working but the return was quite meager compared to the interest rates on my loan. Now that things have turned around a bit, next year should be better in terms of contributing more to my IRA.

I'll probably look at diversifying from domestic holdings, too. My boss says its a bad way of going about investments but I usually first look at the expense ratio (fees and cost) then return, and then underlying holdings if I need to read up on them a bit to understand the portfolio better.

Might open up a brokerage account too depending on my appetite.
