Any thoughts (or experience) with how to split up an IRA for Income Production and of course Capital Preservation?

Something about $450K in size. My first thought was to put the whole thing in either FF or HY10. But, I am not too sure if that is a good idea.

I ran a bunch of tests through a spreadsheet (with FF and HY10 returns) using a number of different starting years to get an idea how various time periods affected the bottom line and most looked pretty good.

But I am still not sure if a single approach for the entire portfolio is Foolish.

Thanks for any input.
