I do understand the concept that, over the long-term, equities "should" perform better than bond funds or CD ladders. I also understand the concept that, in the long-term, we are all dead. I try to hedge my bets. Equities for our heirs, CDs and bond funds for us.




Fixed-income is dull-and-boring. Yup, by definition. When one is retired, dull-and-boring is about as good as it gets.

Couldn't agree more. At my age, I don't need any more volatility in my life than what I'm already dealing with. I long ago stopped riding roller coasters, not the type of thrills I'm looking for in life.

Wm. Bernstein described it quite succinctly as "when you've won the game." The notion is, quite candidly, to cash out (to a degree), disregard yields or profits potentially going forward ,and just book green.
