a little over a year ago, I parked my AA at 51/49 right after I FIREd.
I also used M* portfolio analysis tool...current AA is 53/47 with details:
44.48% bonds (mostly TE mutual funds and some EE and I bonds)
39.21% US stocks
12.76% foreign stocks
overall portfolio is down 7.87% YTD as of Friday close.
10 yr return holding up at +6.27%.
to clarify the above data:
I have been adding to my TE bond funds thru DCA at a rate of $400 per month to achieve an annual dividend harvest sufficient to pay my annual school/prop tax bill. this way other cities (bond issuers) can pay my city (taxing me). effectively, i am serving as the middleman doing the DCA, receiving dividends and writing the checks out and doing my tax forms. so i sit back and grin at all this higher finance going on and it's all tax free to me.
no further contributions were made to any stock mutual funds since Apr 07, except of course cap gains and dividends generated.
except for continued bond DCA, I am "sitting tight".
