Think in terms of your portfolio, not individual stocks or funds.

About 90% of the difference between the returns of different portfolios comes down to broad decisions about which types of assets to buy, rather than narrow decisions about which specific stocks, bonds or mutual funds to hold.

The classic blend is to put 60% of your holdings in stocks and 40% in bonds. Conservative investors may want to reverse those proportions, while aggressive investors may want to drop the bond component to 20%.
