Is it smart to invest in the c,f,s and i funds of the tsp right now. I've noticed they've dropped?

Right now im contributing 50% C, 5 F, 20 C, 20 S, and 5 I. So wht do you think, or what does your allocations look like. I've looked up stuff and know I should make m own decision, but was wondering what some more experienced investors thought. Thanks!!

Update:

Sorry I messed up the percentages its 50% G, 5 F, 20 C, 20 S, 5 I

Update 2:

    If you're in it for the long haul, you shouldn't be worried about the prices dropping. If you're young - less than 60, this works to your advantage, since you are buying cheaper shares.

    I don't know what your age is, but if you are less than 40, you should be 70% equities.

    35% C common stocks

    15% S small/mid cap stocks

    20% I international stocks

    30% fixed income (I think these are the G & F funds)

    sweetie . . . we need a little more information to evaluate the Funds. Maybe a name or ticker would help.

    You look cute though.
