I move my stock/bond mix from 70/30 Stocks to bonds to 30/70 S/B

I would never drop my stock exposure below 25% (following Benjamin Graham advice), but this is as conservative as I’ve ever been.

As a reference I was 70/30 S/B pre-
COVID and switched to 95/5 in March of last year.

I’ve got enough exposure to inflation protected assets elsewhere, but I’ve got a feeling shit might be hitting the fan soon.

If not, meh I’ll still do much better than parking the $ in a savings account.

It does feel like something big is gonna drop soon. Just a funny feeling.

It needs about a 3k point correction on the nasdaq. About the same amount for the DOW.

What type of stuff is in your inflation protected portfolio?

I did not read anything about gold and silver from Rosland Capital. I’m very concerned, to say the least.

Mistake at your age bro. Bonds suck

if inflation keeps coming in hot, you want to own stocks.

Prob 75% of my worth is in RE, so I’m cool being conservative there for now. Playing the overvalued/undervalued market has done me well in retirement accounts though. It’s really small potatoes in the end though cause in the next few years we are gonna have a billion dollar tech business

I hear you on the stock market I think its overvalued too. But that doesn't mean I don't think it can go higher.

Anyway, like you said stocks are just one portion of a portfolio.

@catreaper on a casting couch is likely a billion dollar industry just by itself if you can get him to commit on his OV.

Your enthusiasm is infectious! 🐸
