VFIAX v. FBGRX
« on: August 26, 2020, 11:54:13 AM »
I hold both of these funds.  My 401k, IRA and Brokerage are all into the Vanguard S&P Index and my HSA is in the Fidelity Blue Chip Growth.  The Vanguard Index is up like 6% for the year, which is great, but the Fidelity Growth Fund is up over 35%.  Thatís nuts.  I put my HSA in the Fidelity account because I thought a blue chip fund would carry the equivalent risk of a S&P index but I never expected it to outperform it anywhere close to this.  Iím considering moving everything to the Growth Fund but figure I must be missing something that makes the growth fund less attractive.  I know it doesnít get dividends like the index but even that is probably like 2% tagged into the index.  Am I missing something or are blue chip growth funds the way to go?

Chasing returns is always a costly move.
