September 13, 2013
Excerpt from The Wall Street Journal -- "One way to hedge that risk is by rebalancing. Richard Sylla, a professor of economics at New York University, says investors should choose what percentage of their portfolios they are normally comfortable allotting to stocks and bonds, and return to that balance on a regular basis, perhaps every year or six months. 'A certain amount of discipline is needed to do that,' he says."
