Your allocation, in my view, is just fine for somebody who has more money than they expect to spend before death. When all is said and done, you have 30% in dividend paying stocks -- that should return in the range of 3 to 4% or about 1% return on your portfolio. All the rest of your investments will loose purchasing power at best. You will get to pay taxes. There will be inflation. And the loaves of bread or gallons of gasoline you can buy today will exceed your purchases in 10 years even if you do not take any money out for living expenses.

If you are happy there fine.
