I don't know how it works but I do know that i've been investing in it for the last 5 years thru my 401k program and it's been pretty profitable for the most part. I'm not about to drop it anytime soon.

um, tough to say cause it's not the only investment I take part in and since its bundled into my overall savings package I only mostly get to see what my total earnings are from everything put together.

But i could take a calculated guess and say it's roughly about an 8% return annualy for the S&P. Give or take.

I will say that it was great before Sept 11 and since then it dropped a bit but has been making a comeback. I still say you should go for it. With the housing bubble well into it's maturity all the experts are saying that stocks are going to pick up again.

Better to buy now while still affordable to later sell for more.
