I don't have an opinion on this. Just thought people may find it interesting.

Thanks, Josh.  The article appears to indicate problems for portfolios heavily invested in bonds.  Continuing the theme of interesting reading, here is a link to the Trinity Study:  http://www.fpanet.org/journal/CurrentIssue/TableofContents/PortfolioSuccessRates/

I'm not tech savvy enough to be able to just let you click on the link.  If it doesn't work, Jim Collins cites to it in his December 7, 2012 blog post - Stocks Part XIII.  Happy reading.
