Terms needed to understand asset allocation: Domestic Stocks = US Companies Market Capitilization of US Stocks (According to Morningstar):Large Cap = US Companies with a Market Cap greater than $11 Billion (these are the companies that are household names like Wal-mart, GE, Home Depot, Coca-Cola, Pfizer, and so forth)Mid Cap = US Companies with a Market Cap between $2-$11 Billion (these are companies that you might have heard of like HR Block, but are not the size of the previous listed group.Small Cap = US Companies with a Market Cap below $2 Billion. Probably not going to recognize the small company unless you specifically use their product or they are in your town.   For more financial terms, visit the show notes at http://www.moneyguy.com/2007/01/the-abcs-of-asset-allocation
