Despite the bleaker outlook going forward, the stock market is still about your only hope of overcoming the bite that inflation and taxes will take out of your retirement savings."The future real [after-inflation] return of a traditional mix of stocks and bonds may be closer to 2% than the 5% average of the past," said Chris Brightman, a chartered financial analyst and head of investment management at Research Affiliates LLC in Newport Beach, Calif.

And the ride will be bumpier. Brightman said the annualized standard deviation of monthly stock-market returns was 15% for the past decade, up from about 10% in the 1990s and 1960s. Still, he said, "the average recent volatility of 14% to 15% is only slightly higher than the 13% to 14% level during the 1970s and 1980s.

5 Scenarios When Selling Stocks Makes Sense [cached]

Of course, the more comfortable, albeit irrational, move is to do the opposite, says Chris Brightman, head of investment management at Research Affiliates, a Newport Beach, Cal., investment firm. Many people want to follow the herd, sticking with investments that they're enthused about (because they're hot!) and selling those that have produced poor recent results. If you want to be smart about rebalancing, you need to be aware that a lot of people act irrationally-at least for a while, Brightman says.

Why? The investors who buy what's hot and sell what's not create short-term momentum that does tend to fuel the investment that has performed well recently, Brightman says. But that phenomenon lasts for months, not years. Still, if you rebalance too frequently, you'll be fighting market momentum and could sacrifice some return. Wait too long, however, and you'll get caught in a reversion to the mean and give up even more.
The bottom line: Rebalance, but not more often than once a year, says Brightman.
And if the volatility of stocks bothers them, they'd be wise to do just that, says Brightman, the Research Affiliates official.
"It becomes a personal decision about whether you want to take risk or not," Brightman says.
