For investors who don't want to own any common stocks 60% Bonds | 35% Alternative | 5% Cash
A Tofurky portfolio cooks up income and some growth without using any common stocks. Instead, the portfolio includes bonds and stuff like oil wells, pipelines, mortgages and bank loans. Yes, all of these investments can lose value, but in general they tend to be far less volatile than the stock market. Click on the ticker symbols in the above table to find more detailed and up-to-date information about each individual investment.
Note that you should not set and forget this portfolio for long periods of time. Think of it as a tactical portfolio, or one that depends on spotting the best opportunities in the market at a given time and adjusting as needed. We first cooked up the Tofurky portfolio years ago -- feel free to check out our 2010, 2009 and original 2008 recipes, and see how we've adjusted it from year to year.
