Re: Another inversion today

I think the total stock market is better than the SP500 because it's less risky. By covering more of the market you take less risk of underperforming the market. The only reason not to invest in the total market would be if you thought you had a good reason not to invest in small/mid caps over the long term.

When the S&P500 was outpacing the rest of the market the pundits said it was better than total. Now that small cap has been on a tear, you hear people saying to small cap rather than total. I say split the difference and just stay in total.

Re: Another inversion today

Thanks for all the feedback everyone. I'll show them these responses and see if either wants a change.
