You don't divulge your age and/or whether you need income. If you're younger and still working, I think you should be almost completely in equities.

As for me, I'm retired and need income. I have about 40% of my portfolio in fixed income, i.e.,junk bond & convertible bond funds, preferred, and some high yielding utilities. However, I'm going to be a bit dexterious later this year as the Fed starts pushing up interest rates. I've already started moving some REIT preferreds into REIT commons.
