Vanguard Windsor Admiral on my plans "Watch List"

I'm trying to decide on a large cap value fund in my Fidelity 401(k), my choices are:

AIM Basic Value I (GTVVX), 0.72% Expense Ratio
Fidelity Equity-Income (FEQIX), 0.67% Expense Ratio
Vanguard Windsor Adm (VWNEX), 0.24% Expense Ratio

As you can see the Windsor Admiral fund is the lowest cost fund. However, this fund was on my plans "Watch List" as of 9/30/06 and continues to be on the list. "Investment options that begin to perform significantly below the median of their peer group average are placed on a Watch List".

I'm looking for opinions on this fund. Is this still a good fund to put new money into? What do you think of my other choices listed above? Thanks.

If you chart them for the last 4 years, VWNEX is the clear winner. I guess all three of those funds are on the watch list?

Dude,

You can check out the trailing monthly and yearly returns at M*:

VWNEX

FEQIX

GTVVX

I'm suprised that FEQIX and GRVVX aren't on the "watch list" as VWNEX has outperformed both. I'd stick with VWNEX.

Thanks ats5G, it's looking like my 401(k) plan may not be looking out for my best interests! Gotta be careful!
