Wellington (and it's cousin Wellesley) are excellent mutual funds.

The only reason I don't have holdings is that if you have investments in both tax deferred and taxable you can better manage income taxes being able to roll your own by separating stocks and bonds into their respective optimal buckets.

correction ----fidelity is not an s&p 500 fund at all ...

to keep the funds free they can not pay the companies who issue these index's for the use .

so fidelity created their own index's and hold different stocks . the fidelity fund is not called an s&p 500 fund if you notice .. it is just called a 500 fund .. they have their own criteria for selecting 500 stocks .

yep , all those companies charge for the use of their index's so the free funds could not use the standardized ones .. i own fzrox which is their total market fund and that too is different than the wilshire that others track
