PRDMX (Diversified Mid Cap Growth), PRDSX (QM US Small Cap Growth Equity) & PRGFX (Growth Stock).
I know you already took advice and sold, but for the future... remember that people told you what to do and didn't even know what you were invested in. Yes, high fees are usually bad, but those three funds are different
from the Total Stock Market. It should be a fact that you're not going to simply get the same return as you would've, plus a new lower fee bonus. It could be that you'll have lower returns now.
I think you made a good enough
switch, and got good enough
advice, but it was really uninformed on both sides of the question. But if you don't know what to be in, being in the Total Market is a solid choice.
If you like MidCaps and SmallCaps, Vanguard's Indexes for those are also very low fee. I don't recommend you ever choose growth over value like you had, though. Usually value wins, but it's still a total guess. Stick with a 'blend' Index.
The fee of the MidCap Index fund (VIMAX) in particular is like .08% vs. .05% for the Total Market/500 Index (higher
, but still dead low), and has done far
better over the decades long term, and either no worse or much better in the two most recent BIG crashes. It follows the overall flow of the Total Market, so it isn't likely to do something radically different (just slightly more volatile -bigger swings), but it historically has done a lot better (because far more swings
go up than down).
You might consider that fund instead of, or in addition to, the Total Market (and rebalance between them in that case). I'm 100% stocks and the MidCap Index has been my main fund for the past 20+ years. I've done much better than the Total Market just by making that one choice. I like SmallCaps, too and you see a similar historical benefit, but I prefer Mids because it's a Goldilocks being in the middle. It doesn't get any of the SmallCap nobodies. It's all big billion dollar names we all know, and basically a Large and MidCap fund. The Total Market/500 Indexes are mainly Giant
Cap funds. Those companies at the top have less space to grow and are getting too concentrated with too much of the money IMO. It's far worse now than it was 20 years ago.
I do also have what started as a very small percent of TRowePrice /Fidelity tech funds (PRMTX, PRGTX, FBSOX). Those are all high fees like you had. But those tech sector funds have killed the Total Market Index and more
than made up for those fees. Now, I'm not telling you to pick those (though I still trust them). I just point it out to illustrate that high fees doesn't automatically
mean horrifically evil, stupid, or even a guaranteed failure to beat the market.
