I am still trying to catch (and ride) the top lines in the high-stock AA FIRECalc runs, but when I don't want to do that anymore, might just put 25/25/25/25 into Wellesley/Wellington/Dodge&Cox/Dodge&Cox Balanced, then sit back and watch them race.

I was once a big fan of Dodge & Cox Balanced - it was a core holding during my 401k accumulation period. Then came 08/09 and the fund's performance reflected far too many symptoms of yield chasing - overweight on financial stocks. Although the fund recovered nicely, I lost faith in the management team and moved to Vanguard.

I also saw that DODBX was and still is more aggressive than Wellesley/Wellington, but I like to have variety, and maybe even rebalance between them. Not as exciting as holding individual stocks, but enough variation to have something to look at.

I currently have only a token in the above funds, 1 or 2% in each, so that I will reminded to look at their performance and not forget about them.
