c. Invest in equities today.

Just because equities have "run-up" does not mean they are over priced, does not mean they must go down and does not mean they are a bad investment.

I will need some returns on my portfolio between now and what is my current life expectancy. (Keep in mind 50% of people live longer than your life expectancy - and half don't make it that far.)
