The conventional wisdom on retirement savings says that to make the biggest gains and beat inflation, you should hold stocks approximately equal to 100 percent minus your age.
Article has an interview with Zvi Bodie, a Boston University business professor, who doesn't agree. He "advocates a 90/10 strategy for most middle income people. Ninety percent safe (TIPS and I Bonds) and 10 percent equity index call options, ‘hot’ stocks, or lottery tickets."
