No. of Recommendations: 4
In my opinion comparing long-term government bonds to stocks is apples to oranges. Since they are highly uncorrelated, it is wise to have a mix of both. If one wants to play the timing game, they should vary the mix from 30:70 to 70:30, but having all of one (or the other) seems foolish. Contrary to popular opinion, regardless of age, I believe one should still have a mix of both.
