I'll second that.My first thought was: With that long until retirement, any significant bond allocation is just wrong. An unwarranted fear of stock-market declines that drive some people toward the "safety" of bonds will cost them dearly in after-inflation dollars.My next suggestion is: Unless you have a much larger amount to invest, 35% of 50K is way too small to get a safe diversity in bonds. If you really really want to do it, preferred stocks is probably the way to go. In addition to quantumonline.com take a look at http://www.preferredstockinvesting.com I've bought a lot of preferreds in the last year, with a overall very generous average yield, and a pretty large capital gain. The prices have drifted up and current yields are lower now, but there's still a lot of good ones to be found.
