BUSINESSWEEK INVESTOR -- THE BARKER PORTFOLIO

The Goldman Gamble


If you've got $500,000 to invest for five years in a 60% stock, 40% bond 
portfolio, you might buy a TIAA-CREF fund and expect returns close to the 
historic 9.8% average for this type of fund. Or you could bet on better returns 
from a higher-cost Goldman fund. Below, you can see the amount you would wind 
up with if the Goldman fund beat TIAA-CREF by one percentage point or two.
