What's the matter, AJ, not getting enough love over at FundAlarm? I'm pretty sure Ed would let you know his thoughts.

You know the drill-- you figure out what index your portfolio compares to, then you see if you're beating the equivalent index, then you see if you're doing it with more or less volatility risk.
You're doing a good job if you're beating your benchmark with equivalent or less volatility. Any other result is probably costing you more in expenses than it would to stay with the index.
Go take a trial subscription to Financial Engines if you're trying to get into the weeds of your portfolio's holdings. M* might be able to do it too.
