If you do the "safe" thing and put 100-age or 50/50 in bonds, you'll be locked into 2% yield for the next 30 years.I've been retired for 7 years now, and 90% of our portfolio is in equity(*) portfolios and 10% is in preferred stocks. Exactly 0% is in bonds on purpose.made me look! thanks!i'm about 5% in two bond (old)funds that i rarely look at.one paying 4.7% somehow; the other about 1.8% ...gonna dump some of the latter and buy more pref/diversBut good preferreds are hard to find now, so as my good ones are getting called most of that money stays in cash.must be better than mine.... mine aren't being called (they're making about 4.4%
