I can say that I am in all sorts of mutual funds...well my clients are. Speciality Funds are a great place to invest once you have taken care of the major asset classes.

Especially Health and BioTech. Any questions, post it here and I can try and answer.

Abey tujhe pata bhi hain, aaj tak koi bhi prono site ghantey main nahi gayee, every month its growing by 1600%, and adding more then 2 lac customer every month.

There is no business like ...........pondy business.

Bhaimere, believe me, my 401k was totally invested in Blend and going well till this month, but now I know its time to move this into value or growth.

well here I want to discuss direct investment of speciality mutual funds rather 401ks.

Does anyone heard of any good Health/Tech, please share

Unless you have the acumen and foresight and the time to move your money in and out of speculative stuff, the safest bet is to put your money in blue chips (income) and growth stock. Go for a balanced portfolio with your eggs spread out evenly. Vanguard offers some good schemes. Over spreading might dilute your profits and appreciation, but it also hedges you against losses. Plus, the thumbrule is that inspite of the small term losses and gains in the market, in the long run the stock is definitely going to appreciate at the rate of 6 to 8% per annum, for a well balanced portfolio. You can check out the growth pattern for DOW and S&P index in the last 10 years for proof.

This being the election year, is historically a very safe time to throw in huge amounts of money to make some quick profits, but you gotta be sure to pull out in time. Best bet is, put some in savings account (Ing gives around 2.5% interest these days, that'll atleast sheild you against inflation), put some in CDs and Govt. Bonds, and have some marked as risk capital in equities.

However, pichchhlay 3 din se market ki maiyya huyi padhi hai.
