I have 3% in stable value right now. I'm sure I'd have a higher percentage than that if I was getting 4.4%. I'd probably move some from my global fond fund into stable value.
My 401K makes up about 20% of my portfolio.

My Roth Return for 2017 has Returned 25% YTD,

My Non/Roth is around 20% YTD.

(Quicken has trouble calculating it, and have not made up a spreadsheet to do it.)

No one stock or fund.

I do some stock ETF "Swing" trading with S&P 3x and -3x multipliers. Get in for few days, then out.

Also do some option trading.

Have made good returns on these VERY RISKY ETF's Not all my trades work out, But since I'm "Retired" I can watch them second by second, and dump out before I take much of a Loss, or I see my Gains start to slip away get out with nice $$$ Gains.
