My portfolio is now evenly balanced. I really do not plan on selling anything until retirement in
two to three years. I really have not thought out completely how I will handle withdrawals.


... you said it would remain balanced forever, and
i was sort of teasing:

one would hope that in three years the RBs would do well
enough to upset the balance severely.

one thing to do withdrawals then with an eye towards
a balance.
but there are those who would be trying to keep the
balance all along: "o-oh, RB's are up and F4 is
down... better sell some Cisco and buy some more Sears"
*i* don't think that's a good idea
(selling winners to pay the bills might be... i just
dont' know (and have maybe 12 years before i have
to decide))

Good luck,

JT
