After last week’s post about Techno stocks being the new dividend favorites,Charlotte mentioned that she was too old to invest in the stock market. I found this comment intriguing as I just met an 85 year old investor who still has about 20% of his portfolio in stocks…. And I’m not considering the amount he has in preferred shares! He was pretty happy with his portfolio and liked the fact that he could beat the inflation. If this investor doesn’t follow the 100 minus your age rule of thumb for asset allocation, why should you?
