When It Comes to Rebalancing, a Little Means a Lot - New York Times
A great article on the value of rebalancing a portfolio. Most people fail to rebalance their portfolios and end up taking on more risk than they intended too. Studies have shown that rebalancing a portfolio sacrifices little in return, but cuts fluctuation by a lot.
A good advisor will monitor your portfolio and keep it rebalanced.
I encourage you to read this article, it is short and well written, a real joy.
