Looks like the eggs, generally, are in many baskets.

There was one poster here, I forgot who, that was "100% equities", but must not have answered the poll:

I'm supposed to be "100%" equities, but I keep 2% cash for liquidity, foreign and hard asset stocks for diversity, and since the market has been up pretty strongly and I have raised cash for expenses through 2016, I even have a little bit of it in domestic bonds. Though the excess cash and bonds are notionally outside my portfolio and AA. So I answered 4.

I'm nominally 100% equities, although I have a tiny amount of bond holdings and a pile of cash that keeps rolling in to my accounts from dividends.

So probably closer to 96-97% equities. But my equities span 3 asset classes per the OP's definition: US, international, and hard assets (namely, REITs).

The poll should probably have suggested excluding the checking account (i.e. cash to support the next 6 months or a year), and exluding things that are 1% or less.

Polls here a like a battle plan...they sound great until the first comment gets posted, hehe.
