I'm in the same boat, 64, retiring in 7 months, near to 7 figures in Folish Four and 55% in Gro Inc. Last year Gro Inc did 28% while Dogs of Dow I had did only 15. Fortunately this year I changed to FF and cashed it out in april at about 23% and went to money market for rest of l999 or will reenter if major correction occurs. I don't like the idea of bonds but with no pension , investing in 100% stocks might give me indigestion. Long term stocks average gain 12%. 5 years you refer to were unprecedented, so to return to market average (according to the efficient market principles), we'll se some -5 to plus 3 maybe in next 5 years. I think I'll stick with foolish four and when I get 24% or so during the year cash out to money market and reenter every January.
