    • Hi Tom - thanks for reading and commenting! 

      Regarding an S&P index plus the QQQs, I personally would be hesitant. In 1999, I bought something similar which was a good idea until the dot-com crash. My fund included a heavy weighting in Nortel, and I paid the price. However, that package might appeal after a correction (I'm still bearish, particularly as I watch the machinations in the tax reform process).

      On your valuation question, I haven't checked the P/Es or other metrics of Bacon's top 10 stocks, but I would imagine they all have fairly hefty valuations. I think you're right about having to go for large caps because of the mountains of cash he needs to put to work. Bob
