John Bogle is not a value investing guru who we typically cover and follow, but his insistence on superiority of index funds over traditional actively managed mutual funds is not totally without merit, at least not for everyone. For many investors, it might be the best invest advice one can buy, especially given the low management fee of some of the index funds.

Bogle talked to Morningstar about investing in Bond and investing overseas recently. His words of wisdom may surprise you:

1. Keep Bonds for the Bumps in the Road

Stocks should outperform bonds in the coming decade, but investors need a significant allocation to fixed income for stability in today's troubled market, says Vanguard founder Jack Bogle.



2. Don't Reach for Returns

Looking to nonconventional asset classes to chase extra return is akin to heading to the racetrack, says Jack Bogle.



3. Why I Don't Invest Overseas

During the next 10 years, Jack Bogle expects the U.S. markets to return roughly the same amount as international and emerging markets.
