Re: Todays the day - $100k admiral fund conversions available
It will be done automatically later this summer, or you can do it yourself. Takes about a minute per fund. Log in to vanguard, go into your portfolio view, click on a fund you own thats over $100k. You'll see a "convert to admiral shares" link to the right. Click it. It'll ask you how much of the fund you want to convert...drop down the box and select 'all'. It'll then ask you how you want your gains and dividends handled...drop those two boxes down and select reinvest, pay out to your bank, or transfer to another fund. Follow the rest of the instructions and you're done.
Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
