If C and S funds are both doing as well as each other, what are the advantages of say putting some in one fund versus just sticking with just with one or the other instead of splitting or putting in 60 percent in C and 40 percent in S fund if they are doing about the same.June 9, 2016 at 11:42 am #18722
Anticipating over the next 5-10 years the C-fund will outperform the S-fund?
I assume shifting all or almost all (85%) is for a better return because of banking on that assumption being made based on the business cycle?
Ehhh, personally I like a diverse holdings, smaller return, less risk. I love this site though, great information!June 9, 2016 at 7:23 pm #18723
If you compare the returns for the last 5 years, you can see significant difference between the two, particularly from about August 2015 where S&P500 recovered more quickly from the corrections than did DWCPF (S Fund Equivalent).
The larger companies with consistent dividends are more defensive in the current environment. From July 18, 2014 to Present DWCPF 1.47% vs S&P500 7.51%:June 9, 2016 at 7:27 pm #18724

That is odd – I tried to fix the links, but either WordPress or the message board software really doesn’t seem to like those periods in the middle.
Edited to add: I tried creating tinyurl links, but that failed miserably as well. So I finally had to recreate the charts, given that I had lost the original links when I edited to add the tinyurls. This will teach me to muck about in other people’s posts.

This is a test:
Reposting 1st link for 5 years from the website below, you can copy or paste the entire link or if you get the 3 day view, simply zoom into 5 year level: https://www.google.com/finance?chdnp=1&chdd=1&chds=1&chdv=0&chvs=Linear&chdeh=0&chfdeh=0&chdet=1465631291533&chddm=501262&chls=IntervalBasedLine&cmpto=INDEXSP:.INX&cmptdms=0&q=INDEXDJX:DWCPF&ntsp=0&ei=KsJbV6mtMs-22Aaz24XIBA
