Assuming you go with 4% mortgage and 6% yield portfolio, on a $100K port you are looking at $2000 per year before taxes. For me there is not enough return the for the risk. If sp500 @ 700 and you feel compelled to make that I can understand. But where the market is now and potential macro issues like possible recession, Euro blow up, China melt-down, etc can easily cause the markets to go down by 15-20%. If you do the risk reward on such scenario, I would prefer to sleep better rather than take that risk.
