We recommended that the investor divide his holdings betweenThe Intelligent Investor
high-grade bonds and leading common stocks; that the proportion
held in bonds be never less than 25% or more than 75%, with the
converse being necessarily true for the common-stock component;
that his simplest choice would be to maintain a 50–50 proportion
between the two, with adjustments to restore the equality when
market developments had disturbed it by as much as, say, 5%.
Making sure your money is set in the right place is very important. Don’t you ever forget it.
