Terminology Question

In Mark Hulbert's column, he says this:

Value Line Investment Survey. This newsletter currently is recommending that subscribers invest 80% of their equity portfolios in stocks.

Is that a typo? Doesn't Equity=Stock?

I think that's the most frequent use.

a: a right, claim, or interest existing or valid in equity
b: the money value of a property or of an interest in a property in excess of claims or liens against it
c: a risk interest or ownership right in property
d: the common stock of a corporation

Maybe Hulbert's counting REITs & commodities as part of an equity portfolio. Or maybe he thinks an equity portfolio is everything left over after bonds & cash?

Re: Terminology Question

it's plausible that an equity portfolio holds cash or other investments besides stocks.
May we live in peace and harmony and be free from all human sufferings.

Re: Terminology Question

I believe their meaning of an equity portfolio is one that is open to holding stocks.* They are saying 80% stocks and 20% whatever, perhaps cash.
