Ok stock finance guys. Need some advice

My 401K just got switched around and I need to pick what funds and what percentage to put in them.

My choices are

Stable return fund EBT
Wells Fargo Growth balanced
Dodge & cox Stock
Wells Fargo Equity income
Vangaurd 500 Index
T.Rowe Price Mid cap
Wells fargo Small cap opportun
Janus overseas

I really dont know anythig about the seperate funds. I was hoping some of you might. I dont want to loose all of my money like I did last time when the marlet crashed. I lost pretty much everything I had in my plan.

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

Bonds are about the only thing gaining today but they can be risky as shit. Funds heavy in Commodities futures have always done well in the long term... but no one mentions it cause they don't want the secret to get out.

best advise I can give you is to determine your risk tolerance and then devise an allocation plan accordingly. You can then determine what kind of funds you want to put the dtermined percentage of capital into. When checking out the funds don't look at overall gains. Look at how consistently the fund outperforms it's benchmark. If the allocations you decide on puts you in a crappy fund try to find an alternative.
