October 2006 Investment Portfolio Snapshot

Here is another snapshot of my retirement portfolio as of market close 10/7. As indicated in my previous snapshot, I simultaneously sold ~$10,000 of iShares S&P 500 Index ETF (IVV) and contributed $10,000 to my Solo 401k, which I used to buy Fidelity Total Stock Market Index Fund (FSTMX).

Current Asset Allocation per Morningstar X-Ray:

Current overall annual expense ratio: 0.26%

My shift of taxable funds into my 401k takes away some possible accessible money towards a house downpayment, but I feel that we will still have enough anyways and I’d rather take the tax savings now. I had to buy a slightly different index to avoid wash-sale rules, so it also changes my asset allocation mix a bit, which I haven’t had time to analyze in detail.

Asset allocation has also tilted toward domestic stocks and away from bonds… may want to rebalance soon.
