Many experts have been on Money Life recently saying that the classic 60 percent stocks/40 percent bonds portfolio doesn't work; some have suggested changing the mix of holdings that make those percentages, others have recommended making stocks 70 or 80 percent of a standard portfolio. Today on Money Life, John Ruth, chief executive officer at Build Asset Management, suggests turning the entire equation upside down, making the bond portion the heavy part, and using options to help returns be more stable and predictable in all market conditions. Also on the show, Melanie Lieberman of discusses a survey showing that half of Americans not only plan to take a summer vacation but will spend big doing it, David Trainer of New Constructs puts Netflix -- which he calls 'the original meme stock' - back in the Danger Zone, and David Miller of the Catalyst Mutual Funds talks about insider buying/selling and its impact on stocks in the Market Call.
