I went in for my octannual checkup last week, and got my cavity filled today. Currently drooling on the laptop.

Other. Partially invested in managed high cost sucker funds and an annuity through nearly ex-CFA. A portion in my AA index funds. The majority is in cash waiting for ongoing DCAing over a period of a couple of years. Some individual stocks for fun.

I had no idea that I was a "backsliding Boglehead", especially since I was never a Boglehead to begin with - LOL!

I'm in the "other" category. On the equity side, still heavy in managed sucker mutual funds and in the process of shifting those to index ETFs, plus a dozen or so individual stocks. On the bond side, heavily invested in individual munis, plus a medium size passel in managed fund. Plus a year's worth of cash in cash sweep fund and checking accts.

I've been all indexed-up for about 10 years now and have enjoyed the ride. Stay the course.

I'm slowly getting there.

It is a slow journey for me also. Moving to index as managers I like get fired / quit or otherwise disapoint.
