What is your age and AA?

I don't know if this was the topic on a previous thread if so sorry for the repeat.

I am 68 and retired, my wife is 59 and will retire in 4 years.

AA is 55% equities/45% bonds & cash. According to Morningstar's x-ray the breakdown is:

Cash 15.97
U.S. Stocks 35.26
Foreign Stocks 21.34
Bonds 26.60
Other 0.84

38, single, working.

5 month cash cushion is in a HYS account.
Retirement funds are 100% in VFINX/VTSMX and similar.
Kids' college funds are a mixture of VFINX/VTSMX and 529 funds similar to "Target Retirement 20XX".

Age 37.

AA is 99% Equities/1% Cash.

Of my stock holdings, I would guess 90% is US and 10% is International, but my mindset is to shift to more international in the coming year.

Re: What is your age and AA?

47 Years old, Targeting 75% equities*, 50/50 US/Intl:

USLB = 22.3%
USLV = 07.6%
USSV = 07.5%

EURO = 13.0%
PACI = 12.3%
INLV = 12.6%

USTBM = 13.9%
PCRIX = 10.8%

When Momma finally retires we'll roll out her 401K and go to a 10x10% or 11x9% portfolio, balancing the US classes, and likely adding REITs, TIPS, EM, or IntSV depending on what's not hot at that time.

Cb 8)
*we're light on FI, but have decent pension & SS income coming later.

Re: What is your age and AA?

34 yo
Semi-Retired

Equities 14%
Cash 11%
Real Estate 75%

Real estate allocation will probably go up by the end of the year. Finding lots of bargains and very few competitors. I feel like Sam Zell!

Re: What is your age and AA?

I'm 65 now, my husband is 57. We've been more or less at least semi-retired for about fifteen years now, and fully retired for the last year or so.

Equities 58.29%
Fixed Income 32.09%
cash 9.62%

in regular brokerage account, and a 401k and two Roths that are pretty much all equities, although fairly tepid stuff, no high flyers
